[aprssig] New User Question(s)

Bob and all,

I have a basic question about the WIDEn-N parameters.

I think I understand that the first number indicates the desired number of 
hops, and the second number indicates the number of hops remaining.  I 
understand the concept of WIDE1-1, but cannot understand WIDE2-1.  If 2 
hops are desired, then why set the second parameter to allow only 1 hop?

I have read the

APRS Digipeating and Path Selection 101 at 
http://webs.lanset.com/wa8lmf/DigiPaths/ .  Is there another link to a 
explanation of the WIDEn-N theory?
