> So this is a reminder that everyone must look closely at raw

> Here is the test:
> Send a packet VIA WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1. THe correct digipeat should

or (also correct coming from that first XXXXX digi is)
> The incorrect response is:
> In this case, this packet will go no further because the WIDE1 by

Full high network "S overlay" digi TNCs which require UIdigi ON WIDE1-1 with
Full high network "S overlay" digi TNCs which should not have UIdigi ON
WIDE1-1 with UITrace WIDE,30
Full high network "S overlay" digis use
UIFlood AZ,30,ID ;substitute your state's "SS" for AZ (Arizona)
Fill-in digis _only_ use UIdigi ON WIDE1-1
(no UIFlood nor UITrace)
All digis use equivalents of
CWID EVERY 0
MYAlias None ;not RELAY nor WIDE nor TRACE nor WIDE1-1
And with Kantronics digis don't forget your MYRemote and RText for remote
access to update more settings later on.
Best routine path setting for a mobile or portable station
WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 (not WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2 nor anything WIDE3-3)
Mobile stations do not _routinely_ digipeat any packets.
Best routine path setting for a BASE or Home station
WIDE2-2 or less
Have fun! Happy New Year!
