I offer this correction.  The T overlay's are the PacComm TNC's
that only Support TRACE only (not TRACEn-N).  These digis can
only do Callsign substitution, they cannot do any n-N multi-hop
functions.  They are Obsolete, but can still be marginally used
in the New-N Network by giving them these FOUR discrete paths:
WIDE1-1, WIDE2-2, WIDE2-1, and WIDE3-3

These PacComm digis will then do a callsign substitution on
those exact calls, and will still be somewhat usable in a New-N
network at least for the first and second hop for mobiles that
use the path of WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1.  When they are configured this
way, they become "P" overlay digis.  But "T" by themselves are
completely obsolete and of no value in a New-N system.
