I'm still working on my board.  It decoded its first packet off the air
today.  It's not quite decoding ALL of the packets yet (or even a majority)
but I'm still tweaking the code and haven't done any hardware tuning yet.

This particular board is intended as a 2-way tracker (one with waypoint
transfer capability), but it ought to serve adequately as a 1200 baud KISS
TNC, at least for APRS.  It's only got 2k of RAM, so I wouldn't want to try
to run TCP/IP over it.

As I've mentioned before, there are still production hurdles to overcome -
in particular, dealing with the oddball pin header needed to connect to the
DR-135T's main board.

To those using the on-board TNC as a tracker - how are you using it?  Are
you on 144.39 full time, using it through a voice repeater, or something
else?
