Sorry I'm so late on this one, I was on the road for a while --
Bob, my area can have as many as five hops between USERS, much
less IGATES. It's a simple matter (relatively speaking) to put up a digi
on some isolated mountain, but it's nowhere near as simple to get an IGATE
in an area where there are no users.
