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
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.
