I'll assume your question is how to set up the X-Digi as a fill-in  
digi, since there's not an actual question anywhere in your message.

A fill-in digi, as I understand, only responds if it is the first  
digi to hear the packet.  In the NewN-N paradigm it would respond to  
WIDE1-1 and nothing else.

So, for an X-Digi, UIFLOOD and UITRACE should be blank, and one of  
the UICALL aliases would be WIDE1-1.

OK, I'm not sure you want a fill-in digi.  This sounds more like a  
regular digi, set up temporarily for an event.  In this case, the  
configuration you have looks fine, except possibly for the limit of 4  
on WIDEn-n.  Check with the APRS digi operators/users/working group  
in your area for the appropriate limit, but it will probably be 3 or 2.

I'm copying this message to the APRS-SIG, too, so someone can correct  
me if I'm wrong.
