I don't understand the issue here.
(A) FSK -- meaning you electrically shift the frequency of one of the RF
(analog/digital) in the radio
will produce an RF output signal IDENTICAL to
(B) A key line keying an internal digital AFSK generator
which will produce an RF output signal IDENTICAL to
(C) Inserting proper audio tones into the radio.
So A=B=C. The guy on the other end won't know, and we won't tell, which method
you're using. There's no beef in the gripe, seems to me, save the fact that
currently be using a TNC that does not have an AFSK output option.
I'd run out and buy a new TNC ...
