Hello Ken,
   You asked "I quite often get a digi reponse to my D700A of "my pos", but
it never shows up on findu.com.  The "my pos" tells me I'm getting digi'd by
the first digipeater, but it's never making it to an Igate... correct?" YES
you are correct. 
   Someone did ask about the WIDE2-2 and WIDE3-3 and if the same digi would
take both. YES, if the digi will take one that it will also work with the
other. The difference is the number of hops that your signal can take.

73,

Hello All, Can anyone explain to me the different between:

>From Bob B. webpage:
WIDE1-1    One HOP works everywhere and via HOME stations
WIDE2-2    General mobile recommendation and metro areas
WIDE3-3    Rural areas with no mountains for hundreds of miles

and

WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1     New TWO hop path which is safe to use everywhere
WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2     New 3 hop path that may be used in remote areas

WIDE1-1, WIDE2-2 and WIDE2-2 settings??

and what does the WIDE3-3 setting do?  Where I'm at in Mobile, AL I
quite often get a digi reponse to my D700A of "my pos", but it never
shows up on findu.com.  The "my pos" tells me I'm getting digi'd by
the first digipeater, but it's never making it to an Igate... correct?

Thanks to any and all for info,

73 de Ken H> K9FV  (K9FV-1)
