Well, that's a major difference, George. I'm on a really busy packet frequency.

That is often the case because someone still uses squelch operation for the
receive side. If they would operate squelch open and use fast carrier detect
in the TNC they would need less TXD and allow a better bandwidth usage.

But that's only necessary for busy frequencies.
