Same here.  We are down to only 12 stations still using the
dupe-generating WIDE,WIDE,... paths, but they are all
digipeaters or unattended WX stations.  These 12 stations
generate more packets per hour than 80 other stations.
Where if they would go to WIDE2-2 or WIDE3-3 *and*
use the recoemmended DIGI beacon rates, they
could cut their dupes down by a factor of 6 to 8 EACH...

Whats the timetable for this digi (and others in IN and IL) to be 
changed to the new n-n paradigm? I see this digi everyday down here in

western TN. Its getting really close to storm season, and I hoped by
(going on 2 months) since the end of the new n-n discussion that digi 
owners and sysops would have made changes by now. I pass NWS bulletins

to RF for my area, and seeing this QRM from 2 states away is going to 
cut down on these bulletins making it to their destinations. We have
but 1 of our digis in west TN changed, but I dont see any on my local 
map of about 200 miles changed except for ours and 1 over in Middle
