Hello Steve,
Sorry for the late answer, I hope it will be useful for you in future
passes! :)
When preparing compressed APRS packet in MIXW for Duchifat1, it doesn't
matter what you use in the From and To fields ('Source call' and 'Dest
call' of the MIXW AX.25 settings).  Duchifat1 doesn't check them.
However, we leave the MIXW  'Digis' field empty.   I am not 100% sure what
would happen if a Digipeating path is added.  At this stage I would
recommend to leave this field blank. (it appears in 'Mode' ('Packet'
checked) > 'Mode settings' > 'AX.25 settings' window> 'Beacon/Unproto' tab)

73 and good luck!
