Hi Bruce and Jordan...
If you're receiving the data from the TNC, but cannot send, it is likely
that you're cable isn't wired for hardware flow control and the D700 isn't
expecting hardware flow control.
You can try software flow control (some software calls it xon/xoff flow
control) or no flow control.
