I had a DR135 with the small TNC. I haven't tried using KISS since the
manual said is not reliable, but I have been traying for short time as
a base, conected to the PC at home with UI-VIEW and was working fine,
and the I swicthed to Winpack and aso worked fine.

I also tried for a while as a tracker. I notice that there is a small
noice thta the radio emites time to time that can be tired some in a
long journey. I also talk with TI2YO who confirm that he has the same
noice. I worked nice, but it lack some interesting features tahat you
can get with oteher devices, like varing the amount of paket in
relationship with your speed or movement. I have once have the problem
that stoped working and I haven't been able to figure out why or how,
I just pluged back to the computer everything was OK, I doble checked
with the GPS and everything was fine. I went back to the car a
installed again and was working... I really hate what something get
back to work by itself.

I enjoyed working APRS for some time and then working paket for some
time in a trip From Nicaragua to Costa Rica. But at the end having
done that before with a KPC3 was more enjoyable because I did both
thanks to AGW. Of course that I do that when I have a friend driving
and I can give full attention to the laptop. I never used the laptop
while driving, my driving test where using the equipment as tracker
