This not what Bob and everyone else has been recommending.. There has to 
be a standard path for all travelers! RELAY,WIDE2-2 or RELAY,WIDE3-3

The travelers should not have to concern themselves with having to 
reprogram the trackers depending on what LAN, cell, or state they cross 
into, period..

I hope you reconsider your thoughts and actions..
