You're missing TxDelay for one thing. Without it, your packets
will be 'half gone' before the radio is even up to speed type
of thing. This is what the installer gives everyone below :

  # change 9600 to 4800 to match serial port rate on your radio
  attach asy ttyS0 - ax25 vhf 4096 256 9600

  ifconfig vhf description "vhf - 1200 baud port"

  param vhf 2 256
  param vhf 3 1
  param vhf 5 1

  # tx delay of 250 milliseconds, you can try (20) 200, might
  # be too short, but then again I don't know today's radios.
  param vhf TxDelay 25

  ax25 bctext "my packet station"
  ax25 bcinterval 1200
  ax25 bc vhf
