I think that I would disagree a bit with your logic. If the DigiNed (or 
other) digi was a "low level" digi that could help mobiles make it to a 
higher elevation WIDEn-N digi, then I would agree with making it a WIDE1-1 
only digi. I believe your intention was to move it to a higher location a 
few hundred metres up. For now, it will be the closest thing to a "big 
footprint" digi that you will have around there. Looking ahead to when it is 
in use and mobile stations are passing through, if it was a WIDE1-1 only 
digi, it would ONLY help out those mobiles if they started their path with 
WIDE1-1. If you make it a WIDEn-N digi, it will help out mobiles that start 
their path with either WIDE1-1 or WIDEn-N.
