Most folks that really get serious about packet data even give up the 
fussy sound cards and go with real TNC's.  The Kenwood TNC doesn't work 
because it has a slow cpu and no buffer.  Give it more then one packet 
of 80 or so bytes at a time and it has a serious case of data indigestion.

Check on the bottom of this page for more on the Kenwoods.

Kenwood is announcing a new radio at DCC (you're all going - right? 
http://tapr.org/dcc.html ) and rumor has it that they know of the D700's 
shortcomings and are working to fix that.  Maybe that's what's being 
announced.  It's about time we get a real 9600 (or better) plug and play 
data radio.  It would sure break open the amateur radio datacomm world.
