Well, someone will ... I am working with a new digi based on the Elcom
uTNT, and it seems to have this same behavior - I haven't figured
out how to turn on callsign substitution.

But I'm seeing packets like this in findu:


where I'm certain that the first hop was from K6DBG-12, the new digi.
W6CX-3 seems perfectly happy to continue ... but maybe this is
an artifact of the MIC-E encoding? That always seems to confuse what
is shown in the findu trace.
