[aprssig] MFJ working on a new SMT version 1270

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.
