NETROM query

Yes, it is.  I asked Dan Frank about this some time ago.  He said that in
his implementation of NET/Wrong for NET, it will only try the highest-
quality route (unlike the original and its clone, which will try up to 3
different routes.  I'm not sure about the G8BPQ implementation).  I didn't
ask whether it was a deliberate omission on his part, or simply something
he didn't get around to.  In my experience, the alternate routing attempts
are often more of a hindrance than a help anyway.  Ever try pinging an IP
node which has gone off the air, via a route which includes several "real"
netrom nodes?  With all the thrashing about trying alternate routes, the
ripples from that innocent little ping can take several minutes to die down!
