Curt already answered about just enabling gating to RF. I was just going
to comment on your path of WIDE1-1. Fixed stations shouldn't that path.
However, you did state that you were "in a bit of a hole" so perhaps you
won't trigger any low level fill-in digis. However, it would still be
good practise to change the path to WIDE2-1.
