NO. Only the current KPC3+ and 9612 (which use a completely different
microprocessor from the original KPC3) can use the new firmware.

Are you planning to set up these as WIDE1-1 home-relay-digis, or as full
SSID-decrementing WIDEn-Ns ? (I.e. are you going to set the trackers
paths to something like "WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1" or to just "WIDE2-2" ?)
If you use the latter, you can set any of these older units to respond
to an alias of WIDE1-1 which it will digipeat as a simple fixed call.
If you want to do true WIDEn-N where the SSID is decremented during a
digipeat (i.e. a simple WIDE2-2 path in the trackers), you will need
