How does the digi respond to WIDE2 in a WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2 packet if no 
local heard it first?  Are you doing pre-emptive digipeating?  I was 
under the impression that the path is used in order.

Also, I thought Digis were supposed to do dupe detection and not digi a 
packet that they "recently" digi'd.  This prevents a second repeat of a 
just-repeated WIDE1 packet, doesn't it?

I checked where you're located out of curiosity because I grew up in 
Johnstown PA.  That was quite a few years ago though!
