TNC-2

Homemade TNCDesigned locally, this Tiny 2 clone was very popular in CT-land. It got me going on packet and, running pBBS firmware, performed flawlessly 24 hours a day during several years before being substituted by a KAM All-Mode. It's now awaiting a firmware upgrade and also a modem daughterboard change to allow faster 9600 Baud UHF operation.

All components were easy to find, construction straightforward and alignment simple. This homemade clone provides all the functions of a commercial one port TNC2 and upgrading to recent firmware keeps it abreast of the changing packet scene.
