Even better, edit the DIGI Options section of uiview32.ini and change
UITRACE from TRACE (obsolete) to WIDE (to make it a traceable
WIDEn-N if enabled) and change UIFLOOD from WIDE to the two
letter abbreviation for the operator's state / province for SSn-N support.
After the edit, it will show as WIDEn-N and SSn-N instead of
TRACE and WIDE. Of course, just adding an alias of WIDE1-1 will
all the operator to set up a fill-in digi, but making the change will
make it compliant with the recommended digi settings as of the last
five years or so in case it ever needs to be enabled to offer support
for WIDEn-N or SSn-N. The owner should of course have enough 
local knowledge to be aware of when more than a fill-in digi was needed.
