Are you running the TNC in KISS mode or command-line mode?  Sorry,
I've read too much mail today and have been distracted too many
times to keep track...  I'm using the "Serial KISS TNC" interface
and have "40" entered for TXDelay (400 ms), but for my KISS TNC it
doesn't matter as it's set with a pot on the TNC (TNC-X).

I usually set it between 25 and 40, depending on the radio.  With
different TNC's than this one of course.

Or perhaps hit File->Configure->Save Config Now!
