I think it was next step to make decision new release is no longer 9.0. I 
was one of beta testers in fixing dupe checking and probably one of the 
first group which got upgrades. I think it was not a big group.

Last days I did upgrade for my KAM XL which is available for downloads. And

KAM XL for wide-range digis. Just is good to know.

UIDIGI command. I think such configuration is good only for KPC-3+ v9.1.

WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 Digis without UIDUPE do duplicates, i.e.:
