WIDE is obsolete and not supported. You might want to refer to
these hops as WIDEn-N to use the proper terminology to
distinguish from the old obsolete "WIDE"..

This is incorrect. AX.25 only process digipeater fields in

Will always have 3 hops.... Not receommended in most busy APRS
Hope that helps.
