Looking at APRS this thanksgiving morning, I see 9
stations sending packets to SWSR9V all using the
WIDE6-6 Path.

Since SWS is not a standard APRS version number I
think it might be a WX thing.  But why are they all
sending with a path of WID6-6 in the middle of the
'East Coast population density where the ALOHA
circle is less than 50 miles and 2 hops is more
than enough to cover an entire state!?

Or is somthing getting messed up at one gate and
messing up innocent victims?
