   I know that it's almost a requirement for everyone to bash SCS on 
every mention of the company, but I have to throw in my two cents - in 
all of the TNC's, etc I've ever owned, nothing ever comes even 
*remotely* close to the construction and build quality of the SCS PTC-II 
I have.  I seriously think you could run over it with a truck and it 
would keep running.  These things are made for continuous use in a 
saltwater environment..  Most other ham equipment would fall apart in 
two weeks under the same conditions.  As much as I love my TT3 and 
OpenTracker, they're not anywhere near the same class, especially when 
it comes to issues like RF resistance in a vehicle.

   And the PTC's are not expensive at all when you buy the modems on the 
used market - sometimes you can get them cheaper than a KPC 3+.  ;-)
