Re: Fill in digi - should I use WIDE1 or WIDE as my alias?
- Yes that's right. So a mobile OpenTracker station hoping to take
advantage of local fill-in digis as well as the high-level digis sets
their mobile path to
WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 routinely (at least in North America).
Please remember, mobile stations do not routinely digipeat any
Fill-in digipeater stations only operate packets adressed to WIDE1-1
or their own callsign.
Full high-level digipeater stations operate packets addressed to
WIDE1-1 or WIDE2-1 or WIDE2-2 or their own callsign (or "SS"n-N).
