Hi Glen,VK2RHR is a wide1 digi only, and does callsign substitution in the path.VK2NR-5 original path would have been WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1, with both used up by the time you see it.

Can anyone tell me why I am seeing VK2NR-5 and not other traffic out of

Someone in sydney might be able to tell me why, or someone else might
shed some light. Yes I understand the WIDE  etc nomenclature.

I see there are a few digipeaters and users still expecting/using RELAY
and  TRACE  ...

ALot of old digipeaters around on hills that are neglected.

I cannot see his original packets of course- that is BEFORE the

as I understand it if he used WIDE2-2, then VK2RHR-1 would be the next
and send WIDE2-1
and VK2RBM-1 would hear WIDE2-1 and since that's the end, just subs its
own call in there.

The question is also, how come I am not hearing other WIDE2-2s out of
sydney via  VK2RHR-1  ?

There is something I do not understand yet.

I had a look at the igate raw packet dump but that was for some other
packets he sent.
