For the KPC-3 v8.2 (KPC3-3F427265-8.2) as a digi, WIDE1-1 must be specified
in UIdigi, as one of the four possible aliases listed in UIdigi:
UIdigi ON WIDE1-1,TEMP1-1
MYAlias none  (not RELAY nor WIDE nor TRACE nor WIDE1-1)

In NCA, Northern California, we use NCA for our "SS" in our full high "S
overlay" digis, and those KPC-3v8.2 (KPC3-3F427265-8.2) TNCs specify both
WIDE1-1 and NCA1-1 ("SS"1-1) using:
UIdigi ON WIDE1-1,NCA1-1,WIDE3-3,WIDE3-2

The KPC-3+v8.3 and later don't have to specifically list WIDE1-1 (nor
NCA1-1) so they can use instead:
UIdigi ON WIDE4-3,WIDE4-2,WIDE3-3,WIDE3-2
