Exactly.  And that was one of the major benefits
of the New-N Paradigm.  It was to get digis to only
beacon with long paths once an hour instead of
every 10 minutes and to TURN HID OFF so that
that useless packet also did not go out every
10 minutes all over 5 states too.

Before the New-N Paradigm, some digis were 
generating over 150 packets per hour of useless
beacons!  Under the New-N paradigm, they 
should be beaconing only  *direct* every 10 mins
so locals can tell they are active, then only 1 hop
every 30 minutes and 2 hops every hour.   In 
sparse areas like out west, this simple change
*drastically* cut down on useless QRM...
