One thing I don't understand is why "fill-in" digis are recommended to
only digipeat the first hop.
If I'm in a dead spot (no coverage from big hilltop digi), then I not
only need help getting out, but I need help getting data back to me.
If the big digi can't hear me, then isn't it fairly reasonable to
assume I can't hear it, either?
All things being equal, shouldn't an area that needs a fill-in digi
need it to fill-in in both directions? (stupid digis that can't do
duplicate suppression would be one of the unequal things, I suppose).
