Here on the APRS SIG should be appropriate. Anyone can also join the 
NWAPRS SIG (follow the link on the site at www.nwaprs.info) to join 
it. It isn't limited to hams just in the Pacific Northwest.

I would say that if you live in a location where there is a bit of 
difficulty hitting the WIDEn-n digis, your location would be a good 
candidate for a WIDE1-1 "fill-in" digi.... unless there was already a 
"bunch" of them all close to each other. You don't want the WIDE1-1 
digis too close together. What's the approximate lat / long of where 
you would be placing it? I and others could look on the map and see 
how it looks.
