Stephen, not to hijack this thread, but just what is the difference between
WIDE2-1. and WIDE 1-1?  It is my VERY liimited understanding that the first
"2" says how many hops are to be expected, but does not enter into the
equation.  Only the "1" says it is to have only 1 hop....  That a WIDE3-2
gives the same 2 hops as a WIDE2-2 setting?

Does the "2" factor in someway?

Thank you,
