Great old "Legacy" TNC!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Works great, I have had 4 or 5 of them. I replace the old version EPROM in socket "U9" with the last released v5.0 EPROM and the serial memory EPROM in "U12" if it is a 24C04, replace it with a 24C16, and they are great! This unit does not have a "Watch-Dog" timer, and that is the only negative thing I can say about this unit. All the later Kantronics TNC's, KPC-4, KPC-3, and on do have the Watch-Dog timer.

Great and Simple  Time owned: more than 12 months
Had one of these and getting another now because of the simplicity of operation and use for VHF packet. Can't go wrong with the KPC-2.

works as advertised  Time owned: more than 12 months
I purchased my unit back in 1990 & used it for several years in KISS mode. The unit performed flawlessly during that time.
