But an old "T" digi can be set to at least some compatibility
as-is.  IT can be set with the four aliases of WIDE1-1, WIDE2-2,
WIDE2-1, and WIDE3-3 and it will at least support the first hop
of everyone in the footprint.  And being high up, that is a lot
of coverage I think.  But if no one remembers the remote-sysop
password and has to go up the mountain anyway, then I agree,
replacement is the best strategy.

But if there is remote sysop capability, then it can be fixed
today to be quasi compatible with the new-N paradigm as is.
Then it gets a "P" overlay to show its new capability.  The full
discussion on upgrading an old "T" PacComm digi is found in:
