Hi Ed

I've had problems when trying to use blank BeaconxPath.  I don't recall the 
exact symptom but it created an invalid APRS string.  The way I got around 
it was to use a path that I was sure wouldn't digipeat.  In my case I chose 
LOCAL.  The settings from one of my digis is:

Beacon1Text		=       !5114.77NL10558.40W#PHG6460/WIDEn-n   145.190 -
Beacon2Text		=       !5114.77NL10558.40W#PHG6460/Saskatoon Amateur Radio 
Club APRS DIGI
Beacon3Text		=       ;145.19-SK*001700z5111.10N/10618.70WrLocal Repeater 
VE5RPD
Beacon1Interval		=       600
Beacon2Interval		=       3600
Beacon3Interval		=       600
Beacon1Path		=       LOCAL
Beacon2Path		=       WIDE2-2
Beacon3Path		=       LOCAL
