[aprssig] W1-1 vs WIDE1-1

The Kenwood radios allow you to enter W instead of WIDE and R instead of
RELAY in the path as a shorthand method of path entry.  The radios would
then expand W1 to WIDE1-1 for transmission.  There may be other software
or hardware that do something similar, but this is the one I know of.
Note also that the shorthand is inclusive of the SSID (W2 = WIDE2-2).
Don't know what they would do with W1-1,W2-2.  As a further example for
those that use the Kenwoods (including myself), to get WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2
in the path, you can enter W1,W2 for your path.  However, to get WIDE2-1
you must enter WIDE2-1 I think.

Hope this helps.
