Unless I'm missing your point you need to keep in mind that the use of WIDE and
RELAY have been discontinued. In place of WIDE you can usually use WIDE2-2 (or
however many Digi's you want to bother upto WIDE7-7). Use the LEAST numbers
possible to get the job done. WIDE2-2 is better than WIDE7-7 if you get where
you want to go. It's just like your radio, you'd use the least amount of power
it takes to carry on a conversation so as not to QRM anybody else. In place of
RELAY use WIDE1-1.
Totally mad. Utter nonsense. But we'll do it because it's
brilliant nonsense.
