There's probably something wrong with my method, then (see my response
to Bob WB4APS's suggestion).
(btw, wouldn't a WIDE2-2 packet be digipeated by a WIDE digi?)

I'll sit down in the car and try the setup, with the manuals on my
knee(s) :-)
Like PM1 driving in Wn-N areas, PM2 parked in Wn-N areas, PM3 driving
in R,Tn-N areas, and PM4 parked in R,Tn-N areas. 
Also, I have status texts with SM/LA2BBA (and some listening info),
OZ/LA2BBA, DL/LA2BBA, one for the home area referring to the local
crossband rpt, and one for under way in Norway - but these work.
