   I don't see the asterisk which would indicate that the packet was 
actually digi'd by a RELAY, so it may not exist....
   In the first packet, why does the second hop show as digi'd, without the 
first one also???
   Since the packets made it to an igate to be archived, was the RELAY even 
necessary?  (I know the answer to this one - APRS is an RF network, and an 
igate isn't the ultimate destination for all packets!)
