The K5FTW-5 digi in Fort Worth, TX has been changed to the new paradigm. 
However, there was a hitch.
It is a KPC3 (not a +) with 8.2 (3F4427265).  I read the 8.2 implementation 
and it said that if it choked on the 30 in the command:


then you need to implement the 8.2 rules.  Well the TNC did not have a 
problem with the command so I thought (there is the problem) it must be OK. 
I implemented the 8.3 rules but found that when I transmitted a packet with 
WIDE1-1, WIDE2-1 this is the way it got digipeated:

WB5QLD>APS221,K5FTW-5*,WIDE1,WIDE2-1/1:=3250.56N/09711.49W-PHG6230 Mike - 
Hurst, TX

The WIDE1 appears to be the problem described in the 8.2 implementation, so 
I changed it to the 8.2 commands.
