We had a nice exchange at tacos today.  Now that we have a detailed 
manual we think we can modify them for FSK or for GMSK.  Before that we 
are looking to try a couple of TNCs to see how far they will deliver 
good data.

I can send you a CD of the manuals if you like.  Tom Azlin turned up the 
chip used in the D-Star radio for GMSK and the chip maker publishes a 
good application note on using the chip with an FM radio like ours.  I 
will forward his message shortly.  Additional discussion today revealed 
that the JARC has some standards on GMSK so we might want to see what 
they are thinking.

Lots to mull over.  Come on in, the water is fine.
