My recommendation would be to use different SSID for each, but as long
as they aren't both on at the same time. Ummm... why is one transmit only
and the other receive only? Or do you mean both are on at the same time
but only one transmits?

Actually, the default in UI-View is no path at all. It is a bit confusing
for people first using it, because "APRS" is entered for the destination
and the RF path is entered after that. UI-View then translates that to
APU25N (at least for UI-View32 2.03) before it goes out over the air.
For a one hop path, you would enter "APRS,WIDE2-1" in UI-View.

I can't speak for Xastir, but yes, that is correct for UI-View. Just
change your path to a one hop WIDE2-1 and you can at least keep
your repeater objects fairly close to home. If your antenna was high
up, I would recommend no path at all. Of course, if a high WIDEn-N
digi could create the object and send it direct, that would be even

Ummm... was the D-Star object really an APRS object advertising
a D-Star repeater or whatever?
