Need advice from the reflectors TNC Guru. I have a Timewave PK-96 in the 
shack and would like to test the modems receive capability by monitoring 
9600 baud satellites.

I figured it should be possible to monitor incoming packets with a 
simple terminal program, but after trying Tigersat and others, I was not 
able to decode anything. The same radio worked fine with UZ7HO's 

I used the terminal program to set the TNC in 9600 bd mode and set the 
mon command to monitor UI frames. Maybe I'm missing something.
