Yes, if your T/R turn around delay is not too bad. Right now,
PCSAT has a TXD set to 12 or only 120 ms between hearing a
packet and transmitting it. Most rigs should turn around that

For the last wee, the only path that is set up now is via
WIDEn-N. SO WIDE2-2 should work fine. All the other paths will
not work now. This is because WIDEn-N has a built-in dupe
ignore capability so those people who are trasnmitting too many
dupes will get ignored for one minute after each success..
