Yes, it has been confusing with all the ideas flyng about.  But
this one is for Europe where a lot of the digipeaters are not
KPC-3+ TNC's which can easily add the voice repeater object at
the digi.  In Europe a lot of the digis are well situated home
stations that are running Uiview as the local digipeater.

And as it stands, you cannot TX a local -direct-no-hop- object
from Uiview unless you change your entire station to no hops for
anything.  So Jan suggested an add-on for Uiview that will send
these local voice repeater object packets DIRECT only,
independent of the station setting.  But again, this only aplies
where a local wide area digi is running Uiview.  This is rare in
the USA.  But more prevelent in Europe.

If this feature is improperly used, of course, we will end up
with a spam nightmare.  I hope the ad-on will only allow DIRECT
packets only.  Since if it is a DIGI, it is HIGH and DIRECT is
what is intended to cover the area of the voice reepeater.  If
it is low, and needs to digipeat to cover the same area as the
voice repeater, then it probably shouldn't be a "digi" and
should not be sending ot these objects...
