Yes and no and I donnno...
1) No balloons use WIDEn-N paths (or shouldnt)
2) The chances of operating as a TRUE mobile
WIDEn-N digi are very rare
3) I am still not 100% confident that when DIGI is off,
that it is really off...
4) There were some repored anomolies in digipeating even
after a D700 UIDIGI RELAY and WIDE were removed
that it kept digipeating...
More testing needs to be done.
But I was dead certain once (may have been a fluke) that
once I set my UIDIGI to RELAY,WIDE and then later
removed the WIDE, that it kept on digipeating incoming
WIDE packets. But I have never had time to re-check.
Good questions. Also the UIFLOOD and UITRACE
are only accessible in PACKET mode, there is a good
quesiton about what they do while in APRS mode?
and do they go on and off with DIGI ON/OFF?
So bottom line is that I just donno all the possibilities.
and it would be nice if someone took the time to
figure it all out...
