We need a lot more WIDE1-1 fill-ins.

Granted I'm biased since I picked up a D7 and I don't like to use the long
antenna since it pokes me the armpit -- still, there are stations around
(this area at least) on the air but not running as fillins.

I sent out some test packets yesterday from a fairly high level home station.

  RELAY,RELAY
  WIDE,WIDE
  WIDE1,WIDE1
  WIDE1-1,WIDE1-1

The only one of the bunch that resulted in a digi, that I saw, was the
RELAY path.   :-(

Time to have some coffee with the neighbors around here.

PS.  For those SAR airplanes, how about using them as TEMPn-N digis?
