You can also check for types of digis on FINDU:

Here is a list of the 120  NO-YET-CONVERTED
PacComm type TRACE digis.  These are the
worst problem in the new-N paradigm, 
because they cannot do WIDEn-N at All!

The overseas ones and their lack of efficiency does 
not impact us in the USA.  But the list of TRACE digis
that have changed over to suport the New-N paradigm
and have changed to a "P" overlay are miserably
small (only 13):

Hopefully some of these have changed to UIDIGI ROMS.
But this shows you how broken the APRS network
is until we get these old RELAY-WIDE-TRACE digis
changed over.

AND IT IS SIMPLE AND DOES NOT NEED A TRIP TO
THE SITE.  Just change the aliases from 

from: RELAY,WIDE, TRACE, SS, 
to:     WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2,WIDE3-3,WIDE2-1

Done (though there are many other changes
receommeded as well on this page to also
prevent the digi from beaconing too often
and too far:
