Are we sure that it's a buffer problem?

I reported a fix for the winlink people as they didn't know that TC is  
a command for all the Kenwood APRS radios. So when you where connected  
and received the status from winlink it's sending i.e QTC 0   QTC 1   
etc the radio "locked"

TC 0 and TC 1 is enabling/disabling the TNC. They have made a  
workaround for this.

Anyhow testing is a good thing to do before relaying 99.9% on a system.
