Ok, It seems that it looks like no one has got this to work, even though the manual says it should. I was warned by Jeff,KB2M that it was going to be a challenge, but I had everything on hand to give it a try. It will work with dedicated hardware TNC, but not with a software based TNC even though the connections are the same. Unless a 9600 baud TNC comes my way cheaply, I will just keep collecting telemetry. I do not want to jinx the Sat by spending a lot of money on a TNC (Hi Hi ).
Thanks to all that responded, 73
