Oops, that was a little unclear.  It will receive at either 9600 or 1200
baud.  And it will tansmit either.  But for the 9600 baud pacsats, the
built in TNC cannot go crossband, so you can only use it in receive-only
mode on those pacsats.  We have figured out a way to send messages to
users in receive only mode, but until it becomes popular, we are waiting
to see if it is worth the effort.
