Unfortunately, it appears that none of the digis except
maye K4WZ support the New-N paradigm. (grrr)....
otherwise they would give you a full trace of the packet
at each hop.   Having a full trace on all packets is one
of the most important parts of the New-N paradigm.

Yes, that was my biggest beef with the "old paradigm".
Not only does it not trace, but it overwrites any
previous trace before it!
