[aprssig] Universal digi path

I forget where you are out there but there is a station near KDH that
is running his station as a 'WIDE1-1' digipeater.  The KB4TOH
digipeater is having some issues with its' antennas so it isn't
covering the area as well as it usually does.  There are plans to put
up a digipeater a bit further south in Buxton but I haven't heard
anything firm about that, yet.

If you run the path WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2 you should be fine.

Also, that station in KDH is also acting as an I-Gate so you should
be making it to the IS.

Subject: [aprssig] Universal digi path

Here I am on the outer banks of North Carolina. I was here two weeks
ago and enjoyed seeing my position reported on Findu without any
problem. I was using the Tiny track and Kenwood V7A in my wifes car
then. I am sure the Proto path was set to Wide3-3. While I have been
here this week using my D700 and the same path I don't see my
position digipeated. I see other stations on my screen without any
trouble and the node shows up all ok but no ack of my postion. I
setup my D7 HT and monitored my transmissions and I showed up on my
Winaprs map here at the house so I know I am sending a good
positions. When I left home the Wide 3-3 worked just fine till I got
to Currituck and then it stopped working. My question is has the
alias of the path been changed or something. I have tried the call of
the node, Wide, Wide1-1, Wide3-3, relay, NC1-1 among many proto paths
without any lucky. I would think there should be a path setting that
should work regardless of where you travel. If that is not the case
what is a fellow to do while on the road. After all that is what APRS
was supposed to be about I thought. Well maybe someone can clue me in
on what gives. Thanks for any help! 73's << John
