What Brian said!!

If you do use the KPC-9612 you'll have a second 1200 baud port.  Hook
that to a UHF radio for user access.

I'd argue that the 'easy' technique of mixing node to node and user
traffic on the same node in the Legacy packet system was responsible
for poor performance and thus disenchantment and downfall of the whole
system.
