@M0YNG The single most difficult thing about that kit is adjusting the output gain. :)

@tk the instructions say to "press the PTT", but the PTT is on the microphone, which I can't have connected at the same time as the TNC...

@M0YNG Hah I forgot about that. When I'm adjusting it I just run "beacon -s" over and over with a test string

@tk hmm. It doesn't appear to be doing anything. at all. No PTT light on the TNC, no life from the radio...


@tk ignore that last comment! sending "test" is too fast for me to spot!

Got another radio out and it shouted at me!

@M0YNG Assuming you're on 1200, you can push the transmit time out to well over a second by putting ~200 characters in the message
