Despite all the good comments about software based "soundcard" solutions, a
solid TNC is still a good recommendation especially with higher speeds.

Look at the "TNC7multi" that can be equipped with modems up to 104K4. You
will find more information here:


The pages are in German. However you can find the English manual in the
download section.

The TNC runs of a USB or serial port. Your choice.

I would like to get into the digital sats and would like some ideas on TNC
to consider. I looked at the MFJ web site but it appears they have
discontinued many of their models. Also looking KAM but have no idea which
one to pick. Appears major deltas are baud rates 1200 vs 9600.

Thanks for any ideas or things to consider.
