Yes on the gateway request, I've had a gateway running (RMS Packet on a Windows machine) for a little over a year. If I have that running on the windows box while I'm setting this up on the DRAWS, could that be a part of the problem? They are using different radios and antennas so no conflict there.
I checked and rechecked the entries in the files as you recommended and they were correct. Rebooted the Pi and checked things again with no change.
I made a new image and started the entire config process over (I'm getting good at it now). The results changed just a little.
AX.25 status shows all running and enabled.
tail -f /var/log/rms.debug results are a little different but the last line still suggests something is wrong. I've verified and double checked the PW and other information entered and it is correct. Here are the results
