But we do have a Digi_ned node running that announces all the
repeaters about every 20 mins or so, it can also be requested for
other information such as Police Station, Hospital etc.
More than once I received an email from a 'Tourist' after they got
home saying how useful they found it. Now you have me thinking that
I should check/update the information, as its been a while since I did.
