Just an after-thought... I regularly beacon with a one hop path (WIDE2-1) 
from my fixed station / IGate. The reason for that is that there's one 
nearby tall digi that has a large footprint, and a several a bit further 
away in the other direction that have nearly as large a footprint as the 
tall one. My "local voice repeater" is up at 2300' ASL and also has a 
large footprint. A beacon going from my own station on RF would reach out 
on some of those digis about as far as far as the voice repeater reaches 
out. I usually have my object interval set at a conservative 60 mins.
