You should be able to put the digi's own callsign in the first field of
your path. I can't guarantee that all digis will digipeat on their own
call, and they may not do duplicate elimination, but I think most ought
Most will also do callsign insertion on a WIDEn-N alias, so you can see
the path your packets took. You can just mouse over your trail on
aprs.fi and it should show the digi you hit.
