That's the beauty of the WIDE1-1.  Absolutely ANY TNC can do it.  Just set its ALIAS to WIDE1-1.

Also set: 
* BTEXT to show its POSIT, PHG and "W1-1..."
* Beacon every 10 minutes
* UNPROTO to APNMFJ  (SIMPLEX DIRECT)
Done.

The only downside is that it will not do callsign insertion.  
But it ID's every 10 minutes so it is easy to locate.
