Re: TNC Reccomendation



Might be considered "fuddy-duddy", but I like the good ole KPC-3 for 
standard packet and APRS.  Plug-n-play for the most part.
I use one for APRS mobile with Delorme Streetmap (old version about 
1986?).  I have a slew of them on remote mountain-tops as digi-peaters.

Of course for high-speed digital modes then one will need something 
better.  I have MixW2 and AGWPE, etc. that work well for the 
high-speed telemetry data.
For above 9.6 one is more challenged to find a wide-band radio.

But alas I am not an expert here!  :-)

Hoping soon to report the AO-40 antenna system back in service.  Cool 
wx and short dark days kind of keeping me inside!
