No, it has only 19 users in range, and so that is a nice little
LAN that should work well (as long as too many of them are
not other digis...


         Actually, I found every digi within about 150 miles of me in
list.  Yep, all six of them were listed.  No, I can't hear them all,
two of them, and one of those is intermittent.

         Are you sure this is what you want to say?  If we continue
this path, the possibility exists that you will shut down MANY APRS
out west.  Possibly what you say has merit where you live, I know the 
activity there is just incredible compared to here, but in my part of
world, we depend on a digi being able to get a signal to the next one.
