But John, the dupes are not because of the home stations
but because all the rest of the time that these packets
hit a normal KPC-3 dig, that is where the dupes occur.
So it cannot be fixed at the home stations,  It has to be
fixed at the digis.  And this WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 fix does
it without having to replace all the KPC-3 digis...  Bob

Hi All
            99% of home stations run software. 
So if the home station software was programmed by the software author 
to substitute the stations call sign for relay then that would not 
cause dupes.

User sets his software to digi on RELAY. Note software defaults to no 
digipeating. User has to turn on the digipeating of relay.

A packet such as RELAY,WIDE2-2 is heard.
Home station digipeats

No other RELAY home station would digipeat that packet is this not 

This is how APRS-SCS behaves when Digipeating of RELAY is turned on.

Naturally I could change it to do the same thing with WIDE1-1. But 
personally I like the use of the word relay since the definition of 
the word relay and the use of the word relay as a digi alias match.

Let us hope we never witness the "Silence Of The Hams"
