It depends entirely on what you are trying to accomplish, and the area 
you want (or need) to cover. 

If you are trying to reach the entire area covered by all three of these 
digis, then the WIDE2-2-only path is what you want. 

If your intent is to be heard in the coverage area of just one of these 
digipeaters (perhaps the one nearest an igate), then put it's own 
callsign only in the path. 



Finally, YOU can hear and reach any or all of these three digis, BUT can 
any of these digis hear each other ?
