APRS around Dayton looks kinda obsolete....?
I am kibitzing via FINDU and maybe all wrong.
But Only 2 digi's within 30 miles.
Only 1 digi within 50 miles is New-N.
The lack of close in digis is probably a GOOD way to handle the overload of the actual hamvention.

Can't find any local Frequency Objects near Dayton that I can see, but of course, they may not show up unless an IGate is very close. I found these, but none is fully in the recommended format.
145.21 70 mi NW has Tone in non-auto format
145.25R 60 mi NW looks good
146.73 75 mi S looks OK
442.675 60 mi NW has tone in non-auto format
147.285 50 mi E using WIDE2-2 spam path
The lack of properly formatted TONE in all of these objects will be a disappointment to anyone with the new D710 firmware.
For every digi sysop within 500 miles of Dayton, now is a good time to get your DIGI compliant with both the New-N paradigm and the LOCAL-INFO initiateive shown above to assist all those travelers driving through...
And Everyone, Drive with Voice-Alert!
and put your monitoring frequency in your position packets... even if you don't have a D710...
Lets meet and QSO, not just drive blind... and deaf...
