Hi Bob,

Thanks for the reply.  I have yet to hook a transmitter up to the KPC-3.
So 'On the Air' testing has not been tried yet.
I am trying to get the basics working first, then I'll interface the
KPC-3 to my transceiver. What I wanted to see was the Xmit LED
illuminate every 10 and 20 seconds to demonstrate that my system is
working.

Please consider setting your TNC for PROPORTIONAL PATHING as shown on
this web page.  It significantly reduces QRM to surrounding areas while
still giving you frequent updates locally:

It gives a local packet every minute,
a 1 hop packet 2 of every 3 minutes
a 2 hop packet 1 of every 6 minutes
a 3 hop packet 1 of every 12 minutes

etc.
