The Alinco DR135T has a DB9, which you don't need a microscope to wire, 
and brings out all needed signals to connect to a standard modem or a 
TinyTrak.  I have been running one with my TinyTrack for about a year 
and am very pleased with the radio.  I did also connect it to a MFJ1270C 
using the rear DB9 and it also worked well.  The audio out on the DB9 is 
independent of the volume control.  One shortcoming is that there is no  
way to automatically mute the microphone, thus I just pull it when using 
for APRS, which is most of the time.

There is a version of the DR135T with a built in TNC, with KISS mode 
available, but I have heard it's temperamental.
