No, the "digi-challenged" units are not completely deaf - they just appear
to be randomly selective about what packets they will and will not decode.
For example, WA2MHV-15 with an OT2m will not digi me (or anyone else)
anywhere within 15-20 miles of the site, regardless of radio, antenna or
power supply. However, last week it was picking off random packets off the
back side of a mountain 35 miles away, from both MY mobile (the same one to
which it won't respond locally) and other units on the same operation. We
cannot identify any consistency to the problem.

it's time to look at the more difficult stuff. You could breadboard the
2211 circuit and see if you can duplicate the OT2M performance you are
seeing or improve upon it. The subject is "not functioning as a digi"
but I take it you have a problem with decoding signals rather than a
problem with the digi settings. However, at risk of being told that it's
"easy stuff" what settings do you have in...
SMARTBCON (I know... it's supposed to be a digi)
WAYPOINTS (I know... you probably don't have a GPS connected)
What do these have to do with decoding? Probably nothing. Heck... you
could do a DISPlay and post all of your settings.

sigh. What an attitude! It's insulting to the other people on this list.
