Which is one of the advantages of the WIDE1-1,WIDEn-N path,
since at least if you pass within say a mile or so of a home
station digi or FILL-IN digi, then it will have a much better
chance of hearing you, since these lower stations don't hear any
where near the same QRM as the mountain top ones do.
