Keith, thanks for the plug on the repeater object...

But if I might phrase it slightly differently...  The way I
approach it is that, "for every digi's footprint, there can be
defined the best-voice-repeater-recommendation for that digi's
area".

So in that case, the voice and digital area's don't have to
"match" necessarily, but for each digi, there should be one best
recommendation. 

The reason I think this is a safe approach is that the coverage
area for a digi is always smaller than a similarly located voice
repeater (packets need 100% error free)...  SO it is easy to
make a 1-for-1 recommendation of a voice repeater for each digi,
than to make the reverse (a digi for each voice repeater)...

Something like that
