[aprssig] More digis are changing to the new paradigm

But for them to increase their paths so you can see them, they will
be adding to other networks that are farther away.  Just because you
don't have much traffic doesn't mean that they won't be interfering
in other's networks.  And just because you don't see those station on
the IS doesn't mean they aren't there.

         Suggest you stand back and look at the big picture of what
I've been trying to say for several years now.  The world is
different everywhere you go -- you have 50 stations within about 66
miles, I have 50 stations within 96 miles. (See and )

         Except I only see a fraction of them because you have to use
a longer path that WIDE2-2 to get that far.

         And Bob -- who legitimately has a problem with congestion --
has 50 stations within only 13 miles.  The whole "New N-n Paradigm"
was to try a fix a problem that BOB is having, not me, and probably
not you.  I seriously doubt this type of congestion occurs outside of
big cities.

         If you read my message again, you may notice that I never
said I want to see stations nation-wide.

         It would be really interesting if a few people from the east
coast would come set up their stations in, say, Hereford, Texas, and
see just how congested the system ISN'T.  We don't need these fixes
out here because the system isn't congested out here.

         Try walking a mile in MY shoes...
