  I have 4 different brand name TNC's I use to cover 1200, 9600 & 38k4 baud 
ranges. For 1200/9600 my PK96 works the best for me as the data rates are 
easily software changeable, no dip switches or jumpers to worry about. I 
have a KPC-9612+ which works well but requires 2 different data cables to 
work 1200 & 9600 with my IC910 rig. I found I had to make some specific 
internal software settings to get it to continuously work right.
  As with any TNC you have to have the right data cable / cables that match 
your TNC to rig.
