[aprssig] AA3JY-4 and WIDEN-N

The TT on my boat has had the same path for a long time. It worked fine 
until last week. I was wondering if someone reprogrammed this digi to ignore 
RELAY and WIDE. I *know* there has been a huge discussion about paths here, 
but what that translates into out in the field is not always so obvious. The 
unit is hard mounted and wired to the boat and reprogramming it is not a 
trivial task. I am frequently out where there are few or no digis in range. 
Now if I use a path like RELAY,WIDEn-n it will NOT work some places.
