[aprssig] Suggested replacement TNC for WIDE digi

One of the major WIDE digis in our area is overdue for an update to the new
paradigm. Coincidentally, the owner of the digi wants to reclaim the TNC
(not even sure what it is, but it's old) for his personal use. So this gives
us an opportunity to update the digi by buying a new TNC and upgrading.
I'm well aware that the KPC-3+ is the defacto-standard, but they're still a
tad expensive. One ham pointed me to Elcom's line (http://www.elcom.gr/),
but these are only in Europe (though I'm sure they'll ship here). Their
TNC-plus is US$128, which seems like a decent price.
 
I'd be interested in other comments as to options or opnions on the various
TNC options (note: PC-based isn't an option in this situation). Also any
tips on vendors selling (who will ship to Canada) the various units.
 
If you don't want to post to the list, e-mail me directly at my callsign
@rac.ca.

P.S. I'm not particular interested in a huge discussion on which is "best".
Just options on what can be used as a stand-alone New n-N digi at a decent
price.
