I am not at all sure this will work with the UIDIGI firmware for 
TNC2's.  Of course I should have checked this before speaking up, but 
perhaps someone has checked and can confirm or deny?  If as I suspect it 
doesn't, then really you are only talking about KPC3's.  There are a lot 
of UIDIGI's out there, particularly in NW Minnesota where 90% are that type.

The best bet would be for the UIDIGI author to simply implement a limit 
on N, can't be that hard.

No one better than you, as the high muckymuck of APRS, to try to twist 
the authors arm.  He doesn't pay any attention to me.
