The St. Louis area is refusing to come up to the current standards and insists on using the old "Relay,Wide" format. The Boeing Club's Digi (WØMA) is now the only one that is up to the new paradigm. I just took mine off the air to move it to a better site.

  Subject: [aprssig] Digi's Still Using Relay When Should Be Using Bob's NewFormat

  First off I know the subject is long, but we still have Digi's that are using RELAY when they should be using Bob's New Format for APRS. I noticed a station that for some reason has it's settings set to Wide/Relay/Trace as noted in it's becon comment (Station is LTRock) and in the becon coment it says that callsign is K5SCD.

    1.. I don't live close the AK and am hering this staion in MO
    2.. The Digi path is N5HU,KA4BNI-3,KC9FIQ-7,WIDE3 (3 or more hops)
  Ok I in Missouri live in a "Rural Area" and have my station set up 2 WIDE3-3 but I thought that Relay was not to be used on 144.39 APRS anymore.
