If you collect old phones or computers with modems then I consider having one of these old Panasonic "key" PBX system's a must. 308, 616, 824 all work out of the box with no programing and even support rotary dial. They can be found cheap/free abandoned in many telco closets now that everyone is VOIP

Got the 2nd TNC working. Turns out the problem was the battery in both units. This one was so bad I think it was shorted and keeping the thing from booting. Now to figure out AX.25 on linux. Oh and the NiCad in my M100 seems to be dead now too. Guess it is battery week.

One TNC back from the dead. Just needs a battery. Now to find a cable with a DB9 so i can hook it up to something with 80 columns. My 2nd TNC echos characters but is showing no signs of brain activity. Hopefully I can figure that one out. 🤔
