- Jun 1, 2012Thanks, Lee K5DAT
3.9MB for what are essentially just text commands to a KPC TNC? d:D This should be interesting to see. Downloading att, and hope to review.
What version software embedded in your KPC 9612 PLUS? I have an older one I would like to try out as a dual band APRS digipeater, and recall that this model TNC needs a dual command separated by a slash on each command line.
Not good for a KPC-3 version, that is.
