MFJ Model MFJ-1278 and MFJ-1278B Terminal Node Controllers.
TNCs are priced at $40 each.
Both units function as they should. Included with each will be one 5-pin DIN for creating a cable to connect to a radio, and one power cable with no end termination.
If you would like me to create a cable for a specific application, just let me know. I’d be happy to help. I also offer my help in getting on the air with Winlink to one of our nodes as well.
To complete the function of these units, you will need a serial connection to your computer. Most PCs do not have serial connections, so I suggest a usb to serial adapter. If you don’t already have one, my recommendation is the following item from Amazon for the connection:
