   Dont' mean to throw wrenches into this already confusing subject

   I didn't include the entire message quote above (folks can go back and
read it) but I think that the above info for the 7265 version is
incorrect. We just had this discussion in length concerning the 8.2 chip 
versions in the digiowners sig. I'll gather those messages and post them

  I'll be testing this particular chip this weekend (on two Tallahassee
area Digi's) to verify others findings in the Digiowners Sig but there was
a difference between 8.2 version 7265 and the earlier versions of the 8.2
for the original KPC-3.
