Anyone know what digipeater software/firmware it is that leaves a wide2  
unmarked after digipeating a wide2-1? I have seen that bug localy and  
needed to work around that for my aprs over udp experiments. wel for  
wide2-1 it is not a disaster but it happens for wide1-1 as wel and that  
will stop a packet in it's track, one thing I have noticed is that the  
software that does it also does not insert the call in the path.
