Yes and no. It's not there in AX.25 binary form but in general there's enough data (depending on the specific TNC2 implementation).

TFM says a TNC2 interface is receive only, but does not address digipeating from a TNC2 interface to a KISS interface (which lead to me assume it would work). 

So yeah, that should be added to the docs to save some other poor sod a 2 hour troubleshooting session when it's really a WAD problem. 

Is there anything that will digi the TNC2 format?
