Does anyone remember the old KPC-3's?

We have a country that only has old KPC3's....  I know they do
not have WIDEn-N support... But Do they do callsign substitution
(version 5.0 and 5.1)?

I'm looking for a way to advise them  (in their limited network)
to at least tier their digis.  But I guess that is what the
original RELAY and WIDE was all about.  Every TNC could do relay
and then set only the big ones for WIDE...

The New-N equivalent (but using the same old hardware) would be
to set the big wide area TNC's to be "WIDE2-1" aliases and all
the other fill-in-digis to be "WIDE1-1" alias digis.  But if
they can only have one alias, then the big digis cannot also do
the WIDE1-1.  But at least it give a 2 tier solution...

Been a long time since I thought this one out.
