That is what I was really trying to understand about changing home
RELAYs to WIDEn-N.. These home RELAYs had a very important roll all
along. But, if they become WIDENs, then the unless your ideas can be
implemented, it could be bedlam all over again!
Until recently, I had never heard that the home RELAYs were meant to
help a mobile make a WIDE digi through QRM.. I understood they were
there because of the mobile's weaker signal, and fluttering while
moving, not QRM.
Now, how can a home WIDEN prevent digipeating, unless it doesn't hear
someone else do the job for the mobile?
This would be cool!
