Yes, that's correct.  Most high digis are heard directly by an IGate, so all
such packets would be seen on the internet (main objective of many casual
users).

Yes.  With only 4 "trapping" slots available in the Kantronics TNC, make
those high "W2,SSn" digis with
UIDigi ON WIDE5-5,WIDE4-4,WIDE3-3,WIDE3-2
With the UIDIGI firmware TNCs more "trapping" slots are available for use in
the high "W2,SSn" "S overlay" digis.

Right again.  That old 1200baud 2-meter AFSK packet gear just keeps ticking
along somehow.  hi  I'm using it for Telpac (email) sometimes now too.
Works good!
