I am KB1EJZ in Stoddard , N. H.  I am looking to expand on a Kantronics
KPC3 AFSK terstrial modem with AX.25 (Level 2 , Ver.2 ) protocol to at 
least FSK 9600 baud split crossband full duplex packet satalite work on
2 m and 440.  Any source of such a modem (and preferably a good used
one) compatable with a 1992 KPC3 TNC and a 1999 Alinco DR-150TQ
can reach me at the above address .  I am interested in expanding this 
station to PSK 1200 baud analog and HF PSK analog of the KA class 
10 meter USB downlink orbital transponders also  I do not have a HF reciever 
and am looking  for one also, and even a dedicated 10 meter AM (SSB)
unit , perhaps with its own antenna system will do to access the KA class 
downlinks.  Any simple , inexpensive , basic units will do , with no frills ,
especially if they are used and about to be thrown away . Automatic Dopler 
Correction is not posible with my Alinco , this need not be a consideration 
for the 2 m uplinks in F2E or F3E . What is important is its add - on , or 
ablity to interface with these two station components  , TXD , RXD and Clock 
The current antenna system is an out door roof mounted omnidirectional
vertical discone for UHF/VHF work . Any comments or sugestions for
HF recepetion or electronic antenna switching options would be appreciated .
TheTNC supports HF FSK WeFAX in conjuction with superfax ii for pc 
( I do not have a copy  of this software ) . It may support other programs 
EMWIN.  I am interested in  Leo polar orbital NOAA weatherfax capablity at 
around 136 MHZ . Computer generated graphics in greyscale or color . The 
transmissions are FM with an AM  subcarrier and I do not know much more
about interfaceing for this type of satalite broadcast and am still digging 
more information for what options may be available or posible .  Any 
comments or sugestions from the experienced would be apreciated . 
Any solicitations , especailly of used equipment , would be greatly 
appreciated .    --- AWW .
