      Actually it's a known bug in the Kenwood's KISS implementation that it
      will respond to the radio control commands that are part of a KISS
      packet data field. The WL2K dev team discovered this. Their
      software and the BPQ32 packet stack have coded a KISS escape function
      that prevents this from happening.

      Yes - a beacon with the right asci text could theoretically remotely
      kick Kenwood radios out of Kiss mode and maybe ever change their
      frequency...
