There are only two as of now.   A KPC3+ (exact settings vary depending 
on what firmware version [ 8.3 or 9.0] is in it) will work,     -OR-     
a TNC2 clone (MFJ -127x, etc) equipped with UI-DIGI firmware.  

Others such as PK-232s, stock TNC2s, etc have no APRS-specific firmware 
and can't do WIDEn-N decrementing, callsign substitution and dupe 
supression.  However, they can be used with a PC (preferrably in KISS 
mode) or used as a dumb  "new RELAY"  WIDE1-1 home fill-in digi.
