For a setup like Bob's idea below, don't forget to also set the TNC to:
DIGI OFF
MYA NONE
HID OFF

Then routinely check _how frequently_ it's packets are being seen (first
copies to reach the internet, at least), like at:

There are no "set-it-and-forget-it" operating modes in the amateur radio
service.
