Sorry for all the recent changes as the New n-N paradigm 
evolved with lots of feedback on the APRSSIG.  The current
recommendations are:

UIDIGI RELAY,WIDE,WIDE6-6,WIDE7-7  (traps 66 and 77)

This will support RELAY, WIDE and WIDEn-N up to 5-5
and NEn-N for Nebraska.  Eventually, we want to drop
WIDE too, since we want to discourage people from using
WIDE,WIDE,WIDE or any similar variants which produce
too many dupes.  Out west, most people use WIDEn-N anyway
so I think you can go ahead and drop WIDE and if you want,
you could filter out 5-5, if you are 5 hops from cities that
dont want to hear 5-5's in your area...

Note also that TRACE and TRACEn-N are dropped.  But now
WIDEn-N fully traces instead.

ALso be sure to set up your DIGI position using the LTPaths
and BLT's for the fancy multi-path system which is very 
efficient..  See http://www.ew.usna.edu/~bruninga/fix14439.html

It is the latest and is better organized now...

30. What effect will using SSn-N have on the rest of the Digis in
if only mine and one other use this instead of WIDE? The rest of the 
parameters I understand and can change. Dave N0XBN
