Hey Mark, your objective sounds interesting.
The bad news is I don't believe I have a contribution for you.

I do have an easy question to clarify my understanding if you can take a

Are you pursuing a RS-232 multi-drop solution, or a RS-435 (I believe)
In the 232 case, are you not reproducing what is available on e-bay for
($50?) in the form of a card & chassis?
In the 435 case, are you finding computer and TNC equipment supporting
the dual standard on their DB- connectors?

What I'm asking is perhaps the lazy way out for me because I have not
read the BPQ stuff that certainly contains an answer.

Where my interests converge with yours is in configuring a UNIX vs DOS
(I'm presuming yours is DOS) solution to the same problem.
In the unix environment, card manufacturers include drivers that bring
each 232 port to a device like xtty1, xtty2, xtty3, etc, so each TNC has
it's own tty (thus no polled requirement).

AND my interests are pretty remote or "back seat" to your own so please
don't exert much effort in dealing with my answer...
I am in the search phase of my interests and I also have not determined
if my card has drivers available for my platform.
