Exactly. I am NOT running any digipeater, there is good coverage around 
me now. Except one area that is 6 miles from me, seems to be in a shadow 
of all the digis... I would set my UI-View32 station up as a WIDEN if I 
could figure out how not to cause the mobile of reaching a real WIDEN by 
loosing my short hop to a WIDEN, <G>
