         Then why is there so much commotion about using no more than 
WIDE2-2 or WIDE3-3?

         Somebody reported ME interfering with other areas?  I'd like to 
see the reports!

         True enough, and that might happen and you'd never know it.  But 
my main complaint is that I am no longer going to see other stations on MY 
map.  Did you see my earlier message about how many stations I see?  I'm up 
to 23 stations on my map now, with about 8 in New Mexico.  In my opinion, 
my area is NOT congested, and doesn't need anything fixed.
