I've set my digi to 22 (220ms) and that's about the limit for the 1270C and
IC-2200H combo I have.  If I set it shorter, if I hear back to back
transmissions on my D7A, I will miss the transmission.  I use 200ms on my
D7A with no trouble most anywhere.

I agree that TXD is the biggest waste of bandwidth in APRS transmissions but
it's hard to set a value that everyone can agree on.  It should be a
regional setting.  Some digi's have radios that take awhile to sync up and
others have radios that can't use open squelch and true DCD...
