      I had the TX delay to 500ms the entire trip (I would think this would be good). Looking back I also had the path as WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 for a while, then I switched it to WIDE1-1.  Neither one worked. 

      I am back in Green Bay now so I can't test any further but I would like to come up with an idea for testing next time.  I like the ideas so far but I think there is something else going on. 

      Thanks for all ideas and if you have any more let me know.

      What's your TXDelay set to?
      Possibly one Digi is set for CD Software and other is squelch (external) and the squelch is taking too long to open?

      You could try a slightly longer TXdelay to proove that theory, and will only take a few min.

      > This question is not totally related to the Tracker2 but it is a piece of the puzzle.  I recently bought a VX8GR  (KB8ZXE-7) and have been testing it out.  I made a trip to the Ironwood Michigan area to visit family and brought the VX8 along.  For some reason the iGate in Ironwood (AB8ZJ) won't pick my VX8 up directly.  It will however gate traffic from my radio to the internet if and only if it goes through another digi first.  There is a digi in Wakefield a few miles away (KB8ZXE-1) and the Ironwood iGate will pass traffic all day long to the internet from my VX8 as long as it goes through the Wakefield digi first.  The Wakefield digi is an OpenTrcker2 running as a fill-in digi.

      > So from the sounds of it my VX8GR is working fine.  AB8ZJ appears to be working fine for other mobiles and fixed stations.  I was picking up the other stations digipeated packets from AB8ZJ as well.  What is keeping AB8ZJ from dumping my packets to the internet.  I believe he is running UIview32 as a digi and an Igate.  I should have tried changing the path on my HT but I was running WIDE1-1 (only).  This really cut down on the APRS coverage for me in a big way and I would like to come up with a solution
