   Again, thanks for the reply. Yes - I have a manual. I worked on the tnc
yesterday checking the software connection. However, I had to visit with
family so I was not able to finish. 
   I turned the audio WAY UP on the other 2 meter rig - when I tried sending
a packet and I was able to hear a very faint burst of the packet. So, you
may be right about the audio level being way down. I will check it out later
today. Thanks for the help. I will let you know what I find out.
73 for now

I couldn't find a manual for the MFJ 1278, but I looked at the manual for
a 1270C/1274C and it indicated that the CALIBRA command was used
to get it to transmit the tones while you calibrate the output levels. Hit K
for transmit, hit the space bar to get the higher tone, and when you are
finished, Q to quit. The instructions for that TNC indicated that there
was a pot for adjusting the level. Would your 1278 be similar?
