Well, althou these application where not written by me, I did take the
time to have a look at the source-code of multimonNG. It seams there is
no code to add a '*' of the C-bit is set in the SSID part of an address.
However, it's not realy clear how exactly this should be corrected.
I noticed that when you just set the asterisk everywhere where that bit
is set, you get paths like this:
... to U0QRQ5-0 via ON0WTO-2*,WIDE1-0*,ON0OST-0*
(just copied this off the air 5 minutes ago).
Is this correct? When I look in the archive of "raw" messages on
aprs.fi, I do not see such an paths overthere! The asterisk in only on
the last message or the one before that?
On what addresses in the path does there need to be a asterisk?
All addresses with the C-bit set? Only the last? Only the last, or the
one before that if the last address in the path is a "WIDE"?
But what if that WIDE-address at the end of the path does not have a '*'
