Hi there,

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.
