Maybe there aren't enough hams in the area. Any clubs around there to "drum 
up some more interest"?

I could see "too many digis" potentially being a problem (but apparently not 
in NM) but I don't think there would EVER be a problem with too many 
properly set up IGates. The APRS-IS apparently doesn't have any problem with

just like digis, trackers, weather stations, and automatic doors, they need 
to be set up properly.

Anyway, I'm glad to hear that APRS is still fun to you, but if propnet 
sounds interesting to you, why not do both? It doesn't have to be "all or
