I'm making a thing to map stuff my station sees.

Mostly it works, and I can see the path packets take to get to me.

But a lot go via MB7USW, but I've never heard MB7USW beacon.

Is that normal?
Do digipeters not usually have WIDE in their path?
I'm pretty sure that's why I've not heard it.

I think there's nothing forcing digipeaters to actually broadcast their beacons, so maybe this one is not configured to do so? I'd ask the owner

@M0YNG you could try sending it a query packet. maybe it'll beacon with the reverse path the query took. some stations just don't beacon though.
