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!
