No, the KPS-3+ has 4 slots for the proportional pathing of the
digi's own posit and configuration beacon.  That leaves the
BText for the local info repeater object.  And since the object
is originated inside the digi, which can hear the channel fully
from its location, then this local info object will not collide
with any other local packet.
