[aprssig] Using digi_ned as a WIDE1-1 fill-in digi

Hi all,
     I'm in the process of bringing digi_ned online as a WIDE1-1
fill-in digipeater and I want to be sure it is setup right.

Here is the syntax from the ini file I am using:

version: 2
digi_owner: K1LNX
digi_call: K1LNX-5
digi_dest: APND13

;WIDE1-1 digi, let's repeat all the WIDE1-1 packets if first in the path
digifirst: all wide1-1 all

beacon: 10 all APND13

My initial testing last night confirms that it's working, but I wasn't
sure if I was missing any syntax. I am assuming that the digifirst
parameter will only digipeat wide1-1 packets if first in the path?

Also, I need some explanation on my beacon text. I currently have the
following beacon text:

!3616.98N108222.54W#W1-1 K1LNX WIDE1-1 Digi

I know the 3616.98N and 08222.54W are coordinates, but I'm curious
about the rest of the string and what the characters mean? Is there a
reference somewhere to this? Some of it is obvious, like the end
comment for example.

tnx and 73
