Then fix the regional problem by adding an IGate (trivial to do)
between every 3rd digi.  With the mountains out there, I find
it hard to believe that it would not be easy to have an
IGate within 3 hops of every digi in the state..

Remember, this does not restrict RF users.  It only is a warning
to users trying to use FINDU (typically blind trackers) who dont
even see any on -air packets and are blind to the problems they
are causing.  So it is only the APRS-IS users that are being
so warned..
