Thanks Jason, I will try the WIDE1-1, WIDE2-2 and see if that works. As 
far as your second question. My radio does, in fact, display "ONAIR..." 
and when that happens my handheld that is set the the same freq hears 
some digital noise. So I know it's transmitting. However, I do not get 
the "MY POSITION" message back to indicate it's being digipeated. But 
then again, that could be a path problem, right?
