Now that I am looking at the thing, I realize I can connect the speaker/mic
TNC leads to the TH-D7A(G) through those jacks and forget the spare HT.
Anyone run digital on both sides of a Kenwood this way? (Radio hooked
to PC in packet mode, Internal TNC on one band at 9600, external TNC
through jacks on the other band at 1200)
