I had poor results by putting a T2-135 in KISS mode ahead of time. I
would suggest AMODE AUTO.

The reason the KPC3+ works fine in KISS mode because UI-View
knows how to put it in KISS mode and how to take it out of KISS mode
if you close the program or the com port.

It was actually me who posted those settings back on Feb 13 2008.
Originally, I just had "AMODE KISS" for the into KISS settings and
"003,003,003" for the exit KISS mode settings. The "003" is HEX for
control-C. By May 15, I was suggesting using "003,003,003" for the start
of the into KISS settings as well. It should work as long as you didn't
have it set for AMODE GARMIN ahead of time. Make sure you aren't
using any profile switching. while you are at it, make sure none of the
digi aliased are enabled unless you specifically want it to digipeat
independently from UI-View. The INT 0 in the "into KISS" settings
should stop it from beaconing independently from UI-View.
Do this test. Set UI-View to com port none, or close the program. Run
otwincfg.exe and make sure you aren't using profile switching and it
isn't set for Garmin mode. Then fire up a terminal program. Make sure
you get a cmd: prompt. Type MON ON and hit enter. Observe it copying
received packets. Type AMODE KISS and hit enter. You should see some
"garbage" on the screen when you receive a packet. Send three control-Cs
to the T2-135. You should get a cmd: prompt every time. Turn MON OFF.
Then go back to UI-View and open the terminal window. Under options, I
set it to exclude Internet traffic. If UI-View doesn't have a TCPIP
connection, it won't make any difference. Enable the com port again. You
should observe received packets if there is any activity. Hitting F9,
you should see it transmit.
