         Not quite!

         The digis that you see near Lubbock -- W5LBB-6 and W5LBB-4 
-- are both on UHF, according to their beacons.  Someone travelling 
through the area on 144.39 will never see them.  I had no idea 
they're there, and I go through (or close to) Lubbock at least once a 
week.  If W5LBB-3 has such a great range, then I guess it doesn't matter.
