[aprssig] PK88 as WIDEn-N Digi ?

A couple of years ago I bought an old PK88 and I would like to set it up
as an WIDEn-N Digi.

On the eprom lable is:
	(c) AEA 1989
	PK 88 E 1646

I know it isn't the latest firmware version, however the latest version
costs $50, which is several times what I paid for the PK88 itself.  I have
yet to connect it to a radio, so not sure if the RF side works.  However,
I have tested the computer side and it is working between the tnc and my
laptop.

I do not have any manual or supporting documents on the PK88, my past work
has all been with MFJ tncs, so I know nothing about AEAs.

Will it function as WIDEn-N digi:
			as is ?
    with latest PK88 firmware ?
with some other firmware swap ?  (ie, Ui-digi, other ?)

Thanks and 73 de Travis KB5ILY
