[aprssig] digi and igate coverage in the plains

I'm in the Kansas City area and can report that
coverage in central, southern, and eastern Kansas is
very good, as is coverage in western, southern,
eastern, and central Missouri.  As others have
mentioned, coverage will be better closer to the
larger cities and main corridors.  There are a lot of
I-gates, so a two-hop path is more than enough in most
areas to get your reports to show up on findu.com.  A
significant portion of the network has converted to
the new WideN-n paradigm, so a path of WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1
should work fine, although since you'll potentially be
away from the denser APRS areas you may want to use
WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2.
