I have to ask, how do I set up the iambic paddle to do 1200-baud
AFSK?  Do you have to keep a copy of the AX.25 spec handy?  ;-)

Hey, good deal on the demo.  I wouldn't have worried about the
temporary digi for that short time either.  You do what you must for
demo's and classes, and hope/pray that what you brought will work AT
ALL!  I often try to bring double the equipment that I need, hoping
that I can make one instance work properly.
