Be careful there. As well as all the "It's not
an ACK" comments... [sounds like something Arnold S.
would say] It is also not an indication that you
made it to an IGate either.
It indicates that your radio heard, and decoded,
its own packet - from *any* digi.
I think it is safe to say that you should be
getting _some_ of these while enroute, but don't
expect them 100% of the time. You'll also get some
doubles and an ocassioan tripple Bee-Boop when you're
in range and decoding more than one digi (much less
with the new WIDE paradigm).
I like to call this an Echo to distinguish it from am
ACK (which you can get with messages). WIth the Beep
set to MINE it becomes an "Echo Coo-Coo". (;-)
