Yes, normally a D700 should not have digipeat on.  Turning
the D700 on as a digi requires a PC, but then the radio
REMEMEBRS the settings and can only be turned off as
a digi with the PC again.  THus it is never a good idea to 
mess around with the D700 as a UIFLOOD or UITRACE 
digi unles it is at a permanent fixed site and wont go 
mobile again.  (But that is a waste of a very good mobile
radio)...
