However, the references to RELAY and WIDE in D700-manuals aren't
obsolete outside North America.
Some have been trying to "new-paradigmize" parts of Europe, but I get
responses with my still practical mobile path of RELAY,TRACE3-3 (or
was it 2-2? Don't remember right now) in the area where I travel most,
and I have set MYALIAS in my fill-in digipeater as RELAY _and_ WIDE1-1
in order to give casual travellers e.g. in boats or cars a lift-off to
more regional digis.
