On my KPC3 I can use three CTRL-C's sent in under a couple of seconds. [That
works unless you set it to something else in the setup.]

A tnc running in KISS mode under tapr like firmware will stay in KISS
mode even when turned off and on, the hardware way of getting out of it
you have already discovered, the software way is to send the kiss return
command, this is the three byte incantation, from memory this is 0xC0
0xFF 0xC0.
