RE the "PS/2" jack a.k.a. 6-pin Mini-DIN      NO!

Like all radios featuring the 6-pin Mini-DIN "packet" or "data" 
connector, this jack IS NOT connected to the TNC and DOES NOT carry any 
data.  It is merely an AUDIO connection carrying two forms of RX audio, 
TX audio, push-to-talk TX keying and RX squelch indicator.   To use this 
connector to receive or send packet data, you must connect some sort of 
external TNC (Tracker 2, KPC3, TinyTrak4, or PC soundcard interface) to 
this jack. 

Details on this connector are on my website at:


Scroll down the list of downloadable files and documents and locate

for complete details and pinout of this connector.
