Keith,

Well sorry to say but, it is WIDEN-N=TRUE.  This makes UI-View give 
state or ARRL support.  Cut and paste the following into your 
uiview32.ini then restart UI-View go to Digipeater Setup.  Then come 
back and tell me what you see.  Where ALIAS= make UI-View respond ONLY 
to the path entered.  VE7GDH-10 has to be in the ALIAS list so long as 
ALIAS_SUBSTITUTION=TRUE and SUBST_ALIAS=VE7GDH-10.  This is done so when 
UI-View hears an RF path of WIDE1-1 it will been be digipeated back out 
as VE7GDH-10,WIDE*.  So if you do the Cut & Paste thingie and run it for 
awhile while monitoring the terminal window, you'll see that it works.

[DIGI_OPTIONS]
DIGI_ENABLED=TRUE
UI_ONLY=TRUE
ALIAS_SUBSTITUTION=TRUE
DUPE_SUPPESS_SECONDS=30
ALIAS=VE7GDH-10,WIDE1-1
UIFLOOD=BC
UITRACE=""
WIDEN-N=TRUE
TRACEN-N=FALSE
SUBST_ALIAS=VE7GDH-10
EXCLUDED=""

This is also per Bob Bruninga, WB4APR:

"HANDLING THE UNIVERSAL ONE-HOP PATH (which used to be RELAY): Some 
areas may still need some FILL-IN small valley digis to help mobiles in 
some areas. These used to be RELAY digis, but these generated very bad 
DUPE situations. Instead RELAY is now obsolete and has been replaced 
with simply WIDE1-1. If a FILL-IN digi is needed, give it the alias of 
WIDE1-1 instead of RELAY and those local mobiles that need to use it can 
use the mobile path of WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1. This gets them 2 hops either 
through the FILL-IN digi or via any other digis as well. But because the 
path is exclusively WIDEn-N based, then the WIDEn-N perfect dupe 
elimination process works."

Oh, by the way before I forget here is what Arte quoted:

"In the ancient practice of acting as a fill-in digi, I've had my KPC-3 
Plus v8.2 acting as RELAY.  It is now, however, in KISS mode using the 
last version of UI-View.  In light of the "New WideN-N Paradigm" I want 
to comply with current recommendations,  yet see the need for continuing 
to act as a fill-in digi."

So I would interpret this as he wanted information on how to setup a 
Fill-In digipeater.

Arte, correct us at anytime on this to be or not to be a Fill-In digipeater.
