I believe the TM-D700A will work quite well for the 9600 birds since it is
full duplex capable and you will be receiving on two different bands.
Additionally, if you wish to work terrestrial packet, it might work as well
too as you can still do "dual band" work.  If single band 9600 baud
operation doesn't work like as in the TH-D7A, you can always set up the TNC
to work in both bands and then just tune each band to the same frequency.
Then you will be using two VFOs, one for transmitting and one just for
receiving.  On the TM-D700A you can do VHF/VHF and UHF/UHF.  So it should
