That packet has no used (*) path components, so it would appear to have 
been heard direct by ON1ARF-2.  Based solely on that packet, the ON4NS-9 
station appears to have requested explicit support of the ON7EQ and 
ON0OST digipeaters in that order, neither of which indicate having been 
used, so ON1ARF-2 must have copied the original packet directly from 

Without knowing the path originally transmitted by ON4NS-9, that's the 
only possible conclusion that can be drawn based on this packet.
