Re: MFJ Dropping out of KISS mode...

Randy Love

unfortunately, no.

when we ran mfj tncs for the bbs that needed the mfj to be in kiss mode, we had to replace the eeprom with a kiss only one, that was aftermarket and i have no idea where to get them now.  besides, i think they cost about the same as a tt4 or otusb if you could find them now.

I had what I needed to see right here. At 15:45:12 UTC, your TNC
rebooted itself and dropped out of KISS mode. It was working fine until
out of the blue it reported "RAM loaded with defaults...." and started
sending raw ASCII packets instead of KISS packets which causes APRSIS32
to complain about the missing C0 that's supposed to be at the beginning
of every KISS packet.

Is there a configuration setting to have the MFJ power up in KISS mode?
Or do you have any idea why it reset itself to start with?
