Re: TNC settings for Kenwood TM-D700





Thanks for your very comprehensive reponse Rich (and everyone else who 
replied). All of the settings match and the radio is in packet mode. I am 
starting to think that the culprit is the serial cable. I thought it was 
straight through but it may not be. I shall do everything you suggest again 
but try it with a new serial cable this afternoon.

Thanks for your efforts.
