I'd say so. We run this on a lot of TNC's in TX. If it's a tiny-2, or
micropower, UIDIGI just drops in. A PacComm TNC -220 may not run UIDIGI,
I'm not sure. But the majority of that brand will.
UI Digi has the advantage that after a power putage, all settings are
retained - they are in the ROM. In fact, we remove the batteries from our
digis. One less thing to go wrong.
