Yes, the TNC is used at both 9600 and 1200 baud and
the 9600 baud has to be flat to work well.  Apparently
1200 baud is also transmitted and received flat.  This is why 
it is important to make sure in all digipeaters that there is no 
audio roll-off any worse than the usual de-emphasis. or even 
better, that the TNC is connected to the discriminator...

A good compromise is to set about 3 dB of de-emphasis
at the digis to account for both types of users.
