Because PHG was "set up" when most folks (if not all folks) were running 
APRSDos  (and some of us still do run that program)  Besides, I agree with 
Bob, PHG is valuable for every fixed station, not just digis.  True, it is 
not necessarily "accurate"  but it gives a ballpark idea of the local 
network and can be very helpful.
