Do NOT send to WIDE1-1.
That keys up every home station and
fill-in digi. Remember that WIDE1-1's are
the direct replacement of the old RELAY.
That is, lots and lots of home stations.
In general, all the rules for the old RELAY
apply to WIDE1-1. And one of those is
not to use that path for Balloons or any
site that can hit a digi already... bob

I realize there is something here that I do not understand. What is
to be gained by starting with a decremented
WIDEN-N path like WIDE2-1 as opposed to using WIDE1-1? They both
have one hop left ... what am I missing?
