No, not at all.
1) Because you dont need an alternative to WIDE1-1
since it always works and works well. And can be
turned on or off from the front panel.
2) The idea is to have a TEMPn-N system ready to
go at a moments notice by ANY D700 mobile that
arrives on the scene and then to have packets
via HIS digi go multiple hops out via other TEMPn-N
digis when more than one hop is needed or the
rest of the network has died.
3) The advantage is that TEMPn-N will be ALWAYS
ON and always available, meaning you dont have
to have a lapotop to turn it on in an emergency
4) On FIELD-DAY when we are required to use
NO existing infrastructure, we dont have to do
anything except CQ VIA TEMP7-7 and the ad-hoc
network is there already... just like it should be
in real live...

I donno... good question...
