I am trying to install equipment for packet communication through ISS. I thought that UISS software worked with EITHER a software modem OR a TNC, but reading (at least starting to read) the 75 page manual, apparently it does not.
Since it does not, please suggest another terminal program or APRS/Packet specific program.
My approach for the hardware is an old MFJ-1270C TNC. I'm trying to learn its ins and outs from its 287 page outdated manual. GROINK Additionally, I have a cable ordered with modular end for my radio (IC-2730).
Any advise or Elmer-ing will be highly appreciated. It has been over ten years since I had any experience with packet or APRS.
My personal email is either AB5R at AMSAT, ARRL or gp_ab5r at outlook.com
