Easiest way is to change RELAY to WIDE1-1
Done.  It is then compatible.  (for the first hop)
But then it only needs a few WIDEn-N digis to then
Carry the 2nd hops..

Still works perfectly well locally.  And that is what APRS is
all about.

If you can get them to change the ROMS to UIDIGI ROMS then those
old MFJ's become good New-N compliant...
