Right now, the only radio I know of that fits that bill is the Alinco DR-135T (without the built-in TNC). It has a DB-9 connector on the back that provides an easy connection to the signals you need for interfacing an external TNC.There are some other single-band 2m radios that you might find on the used market which would be suitable such as the Yaesu FT-2600M and, I think, the Kenwood TM-261.There have been several dual-band radios produced in recent history that include a "packet connector".Bob..._______________________________________________aprssig mailing listaprssig at lists.tapr.orghttp://lists.tapr.org/mailman/listinfo/aprssig_lists.tapr.org
