Personally I like WIDE2-2, thats what EI8JA and I are going to
'encourage' here in EI, though I do think that 'relay' is useful for
temporary digi's in this country at least (we used my TM-D700 as a
relay last weekend).
Now, is there a best practice when it comes to digi_ned/javaprsrvr
combined installations? I'd like to use digi_ned for the funky
satellite tracking stuff, while the node is also acting as an Igate.
Also we have two igates within earshot of each other, I was going to
run digi_ned on the primary igate for that functionality, I've already
configured javaprssrvr on the secondary with
I'm not sure exactly what we are going to do with the SSN-N construct,
or how we should use it. So I'll leave it out for the moment, we only
have one truly 'wide' digi.
