Neat!  Not sure if that was what you were on when I contacted you this afternoon--if so, sounded good.

To anybody in the know---Here's a question I have about the TH-D72---once the TNC is put into KISS mode--can you use the micr0-USB port to a communicate with terminal program on your PC?   Having read the manual, I see that full duplex 9600/dual band is possible, and I see that KISS is possible.  It claimes the micro-USB can be used to connect to a PC.  But I wonder about talking to the TNC while in KISS mode...

If that works--(access to TNC in KISS mode, full duplex/9600)--it would make one nice little portable packet satellite radio package!
