some of us like to use _radios_ for our ham radio activities, not cell
networks and wifi...


Apple's aggressive protection of their ecosystem (specifically Made
For iWhatever, aka MFI) makes it very difficult to connect an iDevice
to a TNC (or GPS or whatever).  By the time you pay licensing fees,
etc, a simple adapter between a 3.3V TTL serial port on the 30 pin
iPhone connector to a RS232/DB9 connector costs $70.
