Can you give a more complete description of what all is involved?
So, with that final line, it would seem that if you're IGate is using a WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 path, then -4 will copy it and repeat it locally so that -11 can copy the response at the 911 center. Without the WIDE1-1, -4 won't digipeat and -11 won't copy it.
The big issue you have is that the -11 HT can't copy the IGate
directly when at the 911 center, and apparently there's no bigger
digipeater that will digipeat the IGate and be copied by the -11
HT. No amount of pathing is going to solve an issue of a marginal
receiver (the HT) at some distance from the IGate without strong
But a WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 path on the IGate should trigger the -4 digipeater to deliver a stronger packet to the HT.
Anyone have any better suggestion?

PS. An external antenna that you can connect to the HT inside
the 911 center would likely also solve your issue. Apparently the
-4 has bigger ears than the HT or it wouldn't copy the IGate while
sitting in the parking lot.
