Woah,
I still want to hear what possible application
requires a 6 hop path on the APRS system
that will QRM as many as 30 States in
the country if this is done on the east coast.

Thanks to the list (and to those who replied directly, several of which 
provided a other simple solutions as well).  I have the information and insight 
that I need to "do the deed" on Saturday.  I appreciate the feedback...sincerely.

Kind regards,

PS...I'll be unsubscribing again.  It's best for the list. :)
