    Greetings all,

    I need some help with the built in TNC. I can see the menu from a serial terminal, I've managed to set my call-sign and baud rate, but I can't seem to figure out how to transmit. I've downloaded the command list from this site but I couldn't find any info on how to use them. Am I correct in assuming that all commands need a "switch" behind them like TX "send something"?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Are you trying to control the TNC manually by typing commands or using some macro or are you trying to use the TNC via some software? I've used the TNC in my radio successfully using Winlink (for example) and I didn't have to do anything special - I just picked the compatible radio in the software settings. How are you trying to do it?

    Sounds like using hyper terminal rather than specialized software

    Have you switched into converse mode with echo on? I can't remember who was using hyperterminal with a Kenwood to use the digipeater on the ISS anymore
