Everything you said sounds right, Bob.  Going back to your original 
question, which I believe was about Callsign Substitution, I don't believe 
the KPC v5 (or V6) supports that. You could, as you said, set MYALIAS to 
WIDE1-1 or WIDE2-1 and they would digipeat packets with those in the path 
adding just a * by the name that they were aliased to.  Also note that they 
would not respond to WIDEn-2 because they are simply looking for a match to 
the string and not following the "n-N paradigm".
