Pages 303-305 have the syntax and usage of the OPEN command.

Right. It appears I had misunderstood the role of format 2.

It should not work, as the manual states that "the computer can send/receive only ASCII codes" (p. 304).
I've tried nevertheless to load a binary file with the LOADM command, with various syntaxes, but I got either a 'syntax error', or a 'bad drive name' error.

Instead, I've written a small program that converts any binary file into an ASCII file. It's a DOS program (I'm not a modern guy!), so it needs DOSBOX to run. I still have to adapt the BASIC loader and test it, but it should work.
