  There are several TNC's available I use, Paccomm Spirit-2, 38k4, 96k. 
KPC-9612 plus, 1200, 96k or 38k4 listen only. Symek made in Germany, TNC3S, 
TNC31S, 1200, 96k or 38k4 sat model. There are others the BB can address. 
Depending on the radio you have you have to purchase or make your own data 
cables to hook them all together..
  If you mention the radio you plan on using members of the BB doing 96k 
digital and having your rig would hopefully be encouraged to provide their 
  I prefer using my Spirit-2 for 96K with my IC910.
