The NEW… NinoTNC form TARPN

Tadd KA2DEW send me some great news. Thank you Tadd.

I`ve read that they were working on it, but that they were already that far …..

The sale will probably start at the end of January or the beginning of February.

TARPN is about to start selling its own TNC called NinoTNC. This is to be sold as a programmed CPU and PCB for $14 including shipping. They give you a BOM file and instructions to submit it to DigiKey for the rest of the parts. Costs about $25 including USPS shipping. Total cost is < $40. The NinoTNC is a USB KISS hardware/firmware TNC which looks like the TNC-PI, but isn’t a HAT. It is powered over USB and can connect to any USB equipped computer which supports a program to operate a KISS TNC. The NinoTNC has its own FEC mode useful for making dedicated point-to-point links.

Here some links with further information.
