[aprssig] MFJ Fill-In Digi setup

Hello Cap,

Sounds great, most of the time the digi will run stand alone tnc.  I need to know if once the replacement chip is installed will the tnc still work with UIView32 from my PC when I need to monitor the local traffic and mapping?  If that is the case I will send away for the chip.

 

Thankyou,

Clay Melhorn N9IO Bonfield, IL
