Hi Stephen,
    You should always have your DCD on,  otherwise your radio will transmit position beacons and digipeat  other traffic immediately,  whether the frequency is busy or not,   if busy they will crash with other packets being transmitted and be lost and just cause a lot of RFI on the channel.    When on the tnc will only transmit when the channel is clear reducing packet crashes and RFI.  
    I just turn the squelch up a little bit and turn the volume down on the databand.    You need to turn the squelch up a little to cut out the background noise static or the DCD will interpret the static noise as traffic on the channel and the tnc will never transmit.
