I just stumbled across this URL:
    http://www.arrl.org/tis/info/HTML/aprs/pos-reporting.html


It is still advising newbies to use "RELAY,WIDE,WIDE" and advocating 
operating on 145.79 ! !  Not to mention the link to the now-obsolete 
.MIL domain version of Bob's website.

It also has this astonishing statement:
 
 "A GATE station has a very wide coverage area (500 miles or more)." 
after listing the distinction between RELAY and WIDE,  implying that 
GATES are some kind of superstation on two meters.
