Yes, but that scenario won't work here.  The sending station
will probably be transmitting 30 copies of the same packet in
one continuous key-down TX for 15 seconds per minute.  If one of
those gets through, then it will still be transmitting when the
rare digipeat might occur.  So it wont hear it.
