Digi owners do not need to add anything as far as FL support if the
UIFLOOD=FL providing they have upgrade the digi per the New n-N Paradigm
Solution. This will support FL1-1 thru FL7-7. It is up to the
individual(s)to use FLn-N in their UNPROTO path within their APRS software.
Secondly, no one should be using WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2 at a Home/Base station.
Recommended path is WIDE2-2. A path beginning with WIDE1-1 should be
used for the mobile stations.
