Using Sound Card instead of a TNC


There is now software that will allow use of the sound card on most PC's to substitute for the traditional external TNC for packet operation.  The key is running a free utility called AGWPE, which was written by George Rossopoulos, SV2AGW.   In addition, another free software module is required.  This module is called KipSS/PE.  A very good documentation is available on using the sound card is available at: http://www.qsl.net/soundcardpacket.

The software downloads are available from the following sites:
