[aprssig] LinkN-N for dummies

Wes,
On your page of interstate and digis settings, you mgiht
want to add the ,30 to each of the UITRACE entries.

Also, I did not plan to encourage LINKn-N's for short
interstates. (example of 68, or I-97 in Maryland).
becuase the entire length of 68 interstate can be covered
with 3  digis or so, and also that remote area may better
be covered by WIDEn-N.  For short interstates, it is un-likely
that anyone would change their path just for that.

Similarly I-97 is also too short and surrounded by other
digis and paths.  Though if there are enough digis, it 
doesnt hurt, but just wanted to remind people that the
objective was not neceaarliy to"cover" every numbered
 interstate, but rather to cover the corridor's of travel and
just conviently use the interstate number as a way to 
remember it.

Glad to see others working on this plan
thanks
bob

Hmm.. I thought you could digi through any assigned alias on the TNC.
What
about utilizing mynode then?

The "mypbbs" alias is only for accessing the onboard mailbox and will
do nothing for APRS.

I thought of using the "mypbbs" alias and setting that to wide2-2.
That plan covers almost every conceivable need in our area right now.

Yes it makes sense... I didn't know what everyone would want to do
with 2 extra aliases... so I made them WIDE2-2 and WIDE3-3... I can
update FL to this if you wish.
