[aprssig] Alinco or ???

Scott, I heard about the mic problem from another ham, so always unplugged 
the mic and dropped in in a side pocket in the truck.  The 135TP was 
primarily for APRS, so I didn't need to keep it voice-ready.

The header strip is soldered to the TNC board.  It goes in between the cable 
from the DB-9 on the back and the main circuit board.  Could you replace the 
DB9 on the back with one connected to your board, then plug your board into 
the removed DB9 which plugs into the radio?  Just a thought, might be a 
tight fit.  If you need, I can try to take some digital photos of the board 
and send them to you.  Let me know.
