[aprssig] Pinging a digi?

This is my first post, so hope I am doing it right...

I know I can't (I think) ping a digi like I can an IP.  What I would like
to to is send a beacon through a specific digi before it gets to an iGate.
I would like to test the coverage of a specific digi for an upcoming bike
ride that our ARES is doing comms for.  I could take my 710g or 72a and run
the course while hitting the specific digi (or trying).  We are going to be
using some Micro-Trak AIO units along with other, but if I can verify where
the unit will hit this mountain top digi and where it will not, this will
tell me if we need to do a specific fill in digi.  During the ride, it will
beacon as normal.  I also want to make sure the digi will get RF to where
our command post will be because we will only be taking APRS data via RF.
No internet support for the tracking program we are using.

Thanks for all the help!!
