That packet should have a WIDE2*, but since it didn't, it is
from any of several TNC digipeaters that have that small bug. I
think the older version KPC-3 V2's have that bug as well as some
That is why the KPC-3 Version 8.2's have to have WIDE1-1 in
their alias list, because they would otherwise digi them as
WIDE1 with no * and the packet would die there.

Yes, ignored. That is, treated as used...
