No, because the special path of WIDE1-1 is for
use by home and fill-in digis only. So better to
use the path of GATE,WIDE2-1. It is still only
a 1 hop path but does not key up home stations.

Yes, set your D700 to digipeat by using a PC to enable
its UITRACE parameter with the permanent alias of
TEMPn-N. This way, any mobile any time can be used
as a temporary digi, but all the other time, the digi does
not digipeat any normal on-air packets and so does not
add any problems. But is always available.
