do i need a tnc to receive packet ?

hi,
iv been listening to the iss for a few months now, and was a regular listener when bill mcarthur was on board. it was great to hear bill as he always seemed to be on the radio.
i see that the packet radio seems to be back up and running.
i have never received packet signals before.
i am only a listener and keen to receive any signals i can from the iss.
this morning i downloaded winpack, and am presently reading up how to set it all up.
my question is..... do i need a tnc to receive packet signals?, or is there any software that i can just use my radio and my soundcard to receive packet?
