Yeah, but without the source code you'd be starting from scratch.  I'll
write code for Kenwood's radios when Kenwood starts paying me.  =]

That's the TP... I'm talking about the base T version, no TNC - it's $169 at
Gigaparts.  Makes it an attractive platform for an aftermarket board.

I'd have bought one by now if there was anyone else to talk to around here!

Did some more tweaking on my board and copy is much better now, at least
with the test source.  Real-world performance is still lacking.  Hey,
WA8LMF, are you still out there?  Did you ever get that test CD of APRS
traffic made?  Would be nice for performance testing.
