         This has been a working installation for quite some time, 
but I didn't think to write down the XMITLVL setting.  A couple of 
days ago, I forgot and cranked the Kenworth with it all turned on, 
and the TNC forgot who it was, where it was, and quite possibly WHY it was...

         I'm home overnight only just now, so I'll raise it from 170 
to 220 or so and see how that works.  170 is a little light, and some 
digis don't reliably repeat my packets at that level.

         Receive is working great, as is the antique GBR-21 DGPS 
receiver that was manufactured back when you could still buy a 
brand-new Kenwood 520!  <G>
