So I guess I'm not the only one still using the venerable XR2211! Or
are they going to something else? I don't know who makes Bell 202 stuff
other than CML these days.
Anyone tried any other TNC-2 clones against track 1 of the APRS test CD?
I'm curious how they compare. The data points I've got (including the
MFJ-1274) are all under 900 packets. The Tracker2 is currently doing
around 935. Most of the newer DSP and MX614-based TNCs are scoring in
the 960 range. The best I've seen so far is 991, for a tweaked Tracker2
and a TCM3105.
