[amsat-bb] TS-2000 and 9600 baud Sats

Having failed to copy ANY 9600 baud satellites with my Kenwood TS-2000 
and 9600 baud SCS modem, I decided to try a Funcube Dongle instead. 
Needless to say, the Funcube worked and I was able to copy XW-2F's down 
link using UZ7HO's 9600 baud G3RUH Soundmodem.

That made me take a closer look at the Kenwood TS-2000 / SCS Modem setup 
and, low and behold, I found that the data rate for the external TNC was 
set at 1200 baud instead of 9600. For those TS-2000 users, this setting 
is found in Menu item 50F.

I'm hoping this is the only setup parameter I missed. I don't know of 
any 9600 baud terrestrial links or PBBS near my location so I'll have to 
wait till the next 9600 bird comes along.
