You just set the first 2 digits of the speed - 96 for 9600 or 12

OK, progress (of a sort). Got someone else to
compile the Sketch for me and I loaded the HEX file. The
Windows version of pitnc_getparams and pitnc_setparams
communicates with the teensy on a COM port. A couple of the
parameters don't seem to work right, here's what the baud rate
looks like when set to 9600
D:\Users\KG7BZ\Documents>pitnc_setparams COM12 0 8
Using Serial port \\.\COM12
01 TXDelay - Zero means use ADC 20
03 Slottime (in 10 mS) 100
05 Full Duplex - Not used 255
07 I2C Address (0 = async) Hex ff
8 8 14 40 64 0 ff ff ff 80 0 1e ff ff 51 c0 sum 0
If I set to 1200 baud, I get 17600 on read back.
I suspected this but
was not sure. So just get a built TNCPI 9600 and it will
work at 9600 or 1200 as a KISS TNC? Would love to use a
pair for Winlink.
You don't need anything to plug into the TNC. It can
use either the USB port or the Serial port on the Pi
header. It can also be powered either from the header
or the USB port.

I would be very
interested in something like this. A simple card
to plug into the TNC-PI 9600 to give a choice of
USB or serial to a PC. Something like this would
boost sales of the boards. Not everyone wants to
run a Pi for everything. Also the remaining 9600
baud TNCs out there are still way too high for
Yes, the code supports using the USB port as
a serial link to a PC. You'd need to edit a
configuration file and rebuild the code to
switch to it. There is a PC version of
pitnc_setparams that can be used to configure
things like radio baud rate (1200/9600) and TX
and RX levels.

Has anyone given thought to
using the Teensy board from the TNC-Pi9.6K
to make a plain KISS TNC so those of us
running PCs can have a 9.6K TNC? I have a
bunch of 9.6K capable data radios that I'd
love to put into service on 9.6K.
It appears that the Teensy
speaks KISS on it's serial port, could
this also use the USB port to connect to
