Hear, hear!

There are several (uh, let's see, at least 6) home stations
between me and the nearest digipeater. Some of them, admittedly,
are "just" TCP connected, based on the reports that findu
shows. But several are not, and would/could produce a nice
little fill-in footprint.

I wonder if this is the case with many/most home stations? They
don't actually have a radio attached? Is there an easy way to
use the collected findu data to find out?
