W7CPG is on a distinguished road
Kantronics tnc

Your whole setup was most likely used for Email and wx fax. Problem today is that few email xmissions are sent via this tnc or modem. Very few stations are now accepting emails sent by packtor 1. Pactor 2 & 3 are the modes now accepted. Pactor 1 is very slow and uses more recieve and xmitter time.Winlink station (ham) still have a few stations that will take pactor 1 messages, but very few. Purchase a CSC radio modem and it has the above modes and many more. Earl
