With the VK3 Frequency Change Project well behind us I though it would be
good time to introduce the 'New n-N Paradigm'.


The 'New n-N Paradigm' is the latest APRS pathing scheme that is already
being used by a number of Australian states, the US, ZL and parts of EU.
will also be standard in the new Kenwood TM-D710 which will be released in
VK later this year.


The idea behind the 'New n-N Paradigm' is to reduce duplicate APRS packets
and long paths from the APRS RF Network and free up some air time.


The 'New n-N Paradigm' removes the old RELAY,WIDE and RELAY,WIDE2-2 paths
and replaces them with the path of WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 for mobiles and [your
local digi],WIDE2-1 for home and fixed stations.


To implement the 'New n-N Paradigm' all you need to do is edit the APRS
in your tracker, Kenwood radio or home station and change it to;


- WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 for your mobile.

- [Your local Digi],Wide2-1 for your home station. ( Replace [Your local
Digi] with the closest digipeater to you )


In a few instances you may need to use the path of WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2 for

For the recommended path in your area visit


All VK3 Digipeaters are already programmed to accept the 'New n-N
so you can change your path as soon as you like.


The old RELAY,WIDE path support will slowly be removed from all VK3
Digipeaters over the next year or so.
