[aprssig] More digis are changing to the new paradigm

	I have just been informed that the New Mexico digis will be changing to 
the new paradigm.  The URFMSI web site requests all users to shorten their 
paths to no more than WIDE3-3.  Currently, I have UI-View32 set to exclude 
digis, and I only see 13 stations, and only 4 of these are in New Mexico, 
including myself.

	If I show digis, I see only 30 stations.

	According to the UI-Traffic addon, I'm seeing 30 packets in 10 minutes, 
but that's a few minutes after some fairly heavy local messaging, and I'm 
sure it'll drop off more in the next hour.

	I'm not sure I like this -- for YEARS I have been out on the end of a long 
string of digis, and I don't see much unless people use longer paths.  It's 
very frustrating that so many people want to "jump on the bandwagon" 
EVERYWHERE and fix problems that only exist in the big cities.  I'm 
seriously considering moving all my APRS equipment over to PropNet 
instead.  I mean, if I only see 13 stations, then what's the point?

	Thanks for listening to me vent!  <G>
