Ummmm..... isn't wide9-9 directional for East?  wide7 is the furthest 
omni, the remaining 8-15 numbers are directional starting with North and 
going around the compass rose twice.  Not that this was ever implemented 
on any digipeater correctly..  but I think the kpc3's won't digipeat 
anything higher than 7-7.
