There are a few firmware revisions to stay away from which reset the KISS
parameters.  If you use the TAPR 1.1.8a or 1.1.9 (or any KISS-only)
eproms, you will have no problems.

You need to cut a few jumpers and add a header to install a 9600 modem in
any 1200 baud TNC.  The TAPR modems require one wire to be run to the
board; I don't know if G3RUH-type modems need this.
