      I use a KAMXL with MSYS also in KISS mode… It took some finagling to get it to work the correct port… May have similar issue with BPQ32… I might be able to help.. But some of the items were set in the TNC and some in MSYS.. and I off hand do not remember.. I just know I had to reverse something…

          Information below applies to BPQ32 Only

           

          Setup for Kantronics 9612 and KAM, 9612 Plus & KAMXL allow for a higher COMM Port BAUD Rate, it has been found in the past 9612, 9612 PLUS and KAMXL must

          Use a COMM BUAD Rate of 19200 or above, if less there is a good chance all three will not communicate on both Radio Ports, one cure is to run the TNC in Full Duplex, must be edited in ports sections and TNC Placed in Full Duplex before entering Kiss Mode, I strongly recommend CD Software for the use of open squelch, on VHF/UHF Port please us the Following Commands:

          CD SOFT

          AB 19200

          IN KISS

          RESET

           

          Set COMM Port in device manager to same serial BAUD RATE as TNC

           

          I keep AGWPE on my computer to remove one or more of my 3 TNC’S out of KISS

          You should only use Hyper Term to enter Commands and KISS MODE, Free Version of AGWPE Commands are incorrect for most Kantronics TNC’S

            I do know the difference in the KAMXL does NOT Apply to the KAM KAM PLUS
            KAM98 or KPC9612...

            I just have simply forgotten what I did to get it to work.. I will work on a
            print out of the KAMXL's Display function and post it along with my MSYS
            Settings...

            In case they apply to BPQ32... I am sure it would as best I remember the
            parameter I had to play with was one set in THE TNC...
