 Generally we have three New-N paradigm DIGI types:

 "S" type support: WIDEn-N and SSn-N
 "1" type support: WIDE1-1 only
 ??? several legacy types such as "T" Paccoms

 But F8ARO suggests that a fill-in could also support the less used
path of SSn-N and TEMPn-N without adding normal QRM to the channel
but that it could help out at other times. 

 I think this is a good idea. And the name of such a fill-in
digipeater that supports 1-1, TEMPn-N and SSn-N woiuld best be
identified by the overlay "T". But "T" is already in use by about 35
digipeaters in the world. But I suspect that many of these are NOT
Legacy PACCOMMM's and are just using the "T" for "trace" which is

 It is now time to move on.

 So lets root out any old PacComms and see if any still exist. And if
not, then we can move on and re-use the overlay "T" for this new more
capable fill-in.

 Here is the global list of existing "T" digis. Lets find out about
each one and identify the PacOComm's (the only valid use of "T" to

 Here is the FINDU.COM list of all existing "T" digis:

 If you can find out about these, let me know.
