You determine whether you want the TNC "assigned" to the MAIN transceiver 
or the SUB receiver:  menu 46.  Then turn on/off packet function:  menu 55.  You
should see the PKT initials in the top right of the display.  MAIN is normal.

Set repeater offset on:  menu 43 (no indication on the display).  Also,
don't forget to set a tone, if needed (TONE button & FUNC+TONE button).

In the future this will work by bluetooth and voice command, just like the Ford/Microsoft Sync in my truck
and all you will have to do is say to your TS-2020, "97 repeater" and it will know all the other settings :-)
