9600 Baud Packet Radio Modem -  The conventional packet VHF/UHF radio data rate is 1200 baud because all TNCs provide an internal modem for this speed, and the two-tone AFSK audio spectrum suits unmodified voiceband radios comfortably.  However all TNCs can generate much higher data rates, and most FM radios have an unrealised audio bandwidth of some 7-8 kHz or more.  So in many cases 9600 baud radio transmission is entirely practical with them. __ Designed by James Miller G3RUH
