we also still have lots of WIDE only digis in Maryland.... 
(but they do support RELAY also) so the user does get 
out one hop always.  But thanks. Ill say 
"almost everywhere"...

Not true, in the Keys the digis do not support anything except WIDE,
WIDEn-n, WIDE2-2, or RELAY, nor are there home users to respond to
RELAY over
the vast majority of the Keys.

Perhaps this isn't enough to torpedo your plans, but it is enough that
should drop the *everywhere* ;-)
