What APRS packets from where? It is hard to visualize.  Are you saying you have an area of APRS activity that has no APRS IGate currently.  Yet, there is an IGate 30 miles away..  away from what?  An existing digi?

And you want to add another digi closer to the IGate to help it hear the existing digi which it cannot hear now?

In that case, it is not a FILL-IN digi (which usually means a digi that hears mobiles in an area and forwards them into other digis.  Those digis only digipeat WIDE1-1 packets from mobiles.

If I understand that you want the reverse, to forward packets into a weak area, then the settings for a WIDE1-1 FIll-in digi will accomplishe nothing for that task.  You need a full up New-N Paradigm digi...
