If you previously set D700 up as a digipeater, it would continue 
digipeating if you use it with UI-View not in KISS mode. In KISS mode, 
UI-View would be running the show digipeater-wise.

Any TNC that can do KISS mode would do the job. It doesn't have to be a 
newer KPC-3+. You cold look for a 2nd hand KPC-3 or perehaps get a 
TNC-X... www.tnc-x.com. Only $48 and another $15 for a nicely done 
enclosure. It can connect via an RS-232 serial port, or for a few 
dollars more, you can get the USB option.

I'm sure the J-Pole will be fine.
