But remember that both models have the short cuts in them.  To do a path of RELAY,WIDE, simply  key in R,W.  And to do a path of WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2 simply key in W1,W2.

I asked Kenwood to put those shortcuts in there so that it would be easy to use.  The BAD news that in most places we don't want WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2, but we want WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 so that the second hop is pre-decremented.

In that case the only short cut is W1,WIDE2-1.
