[aprssig] agwpe and d700

Ken, today I tried to use the TNC2 template to setup the d700 into kiss mode,
and it was a no-go.  I used hyperterm to see and interact with the TNC/radio
and observed that entering KISS ON, and typing RESET did not cause the tnc to
go into KISS mode - it simple reset and gave the usual TNC2 compatible boot
screen.  However, entering KISS ON, and cycling the power off and back on did. 
Is there any way to reset the TNC (to finish the kiss mode switch) with out
having to power cycle the radio?

FWIW to anyone reading this thread, the default TXD is 500mS... holy smokes...
not even 350ms!!! I'm going to play with mine to see if it'll work near the
100mS mark.

> Run AGWPE. This will create a small twin antenna icon in your systray
> 1.      Click on that icon and select Properties.
> 2.      Create a New Port and setup the COM port and TNC. Use
>              the TNC2 option from the TNC selection list. Click on OK.
> 3.      Click on the systray icon again.
> 4.      Select Setup Interfaces and enable Winsock TCP/IP Application
>              Interface with a TCP port of 8000 and click OK.
> You will now have to exit and restart AGWPE.
>  From here on, every time you start AGWPE the D700 will automatically go
> into KISS mode. Conversely when you close AGWPE it will exit KISS mode.
> Sounds a lot but it is very simple to do and the setup should only take
> you a couple of minutes.
