Yes, becaues to my surprise, the ID function is not enabled on
ISS, so when the ISS digipeats the packet, you see "WIDE2-1"
(you wont see any "*" to prove it was digipeated by ISS).  It
could have been digipeated by anyone else's radio that is
accidentally on the wrong uplink and downlink.

SO it is best to use the "ARISS" path, so that you get proof if
it was digipeated as "RS0ISS*" or whatever...
