'RS232 to multi PICS'

I want to send an RS232 signal ( one way only ) to several PICS. All
the PICS (Probably 16c73's) will be in the same box. Is there any reason
why I can't use one MAX232 or similar device and distribute the output
to 3 or 4 PICs Rx pins. I think it should be ok but just checking to
make sure there are no gotcha's. Thanks.

better yet. if all the boards are using the same power supply
could you just tie the master tx to all the slave rx pins?
unless you need the rs232 levels for another reason.
