[nos-bbs] TNC Kiss Malfunction

I had a not dissimilar problem with an MFJ-1270 in KISS mode. In my 
case, the TNC would reset some parameters to default without regard to 
what I had set. This was very annoying. MFJ at least addressed the 
problem but ultimately was unwilling to spend much time identifying and 
correcting the issue.

My solution was to replace the MFJ EEPROM in the TNC with a pure TAPR-II 
KISS EEPROM. That sacrificed the normal TNC capability, but since I was 
running JNOS, a pure KISS TNC was a "good thing".
