[aprssig] My home station path WIDE2-2

I often need two hops for my packets to be seen just 25 miles to the
west and north of my home station in Frederick Maryland, but this same
path causes my packets to travel a good 75 miles or more to the east.
There is a wide digi on the mountain just to the west of town, and
everything to the east is fairly flat.  Is WIDE2-2 appropriate in this
case?  I've been thinking about changing it to WIDE1-1, but that would
mean not being heard by stations that really aren't that far away.

What is the best way to determine the most appropriate path?
