Or uihop 3 (new n-n) in areas that can afford it.

I would say, that looking at the APRS density map on
http://www.ew.usna.edu/~bruninga/aprs/usamapfu.gif
there is no need to restrict hops to WIDE2-2 in 70% of
north america.  Taking mountains -and-density into
consideration I/d think that a map something like this
would work as a ballpark recommendation?

I know I will get flack, beacuse this is an area of local
interest and details, but nature abhors a vacuum, so
if there must be a chart, could this be it?
