It's enabled. I like to be able to glance at the map and see the other

Perhaps I missed that in the original thread. The "digi at my elbow" that is 
sending an object for the local repeater is a KPC-3+ not a UIDIGI. The 
originating digi shows as a digi, not an IGate.

Here's the beacon that I'm sending from the KPC-3+ digi. It isn't using an 
ambiguous position. It is going out with no path.

Thanks for the info. I can't see any difference between the object that I'm 
sending out and the examples you gave except for the "3" after the BT in 
your examples and the fact that I'm not using an ambiguous position. What is 
the significance of the "3"? Is the UIDIGI capable of sending out multiple 
BTs? Does the problem you are describing only happen when the originating 
digi is a UIDIGI?
