More doesn't = better, especially if they are 450 miles out.  Here in
the DC area way too many people are running 3 hop paths and they are
heard in Philadelphia and the same with some folks in Philadelphia -
their packets are generally not helpful to folks in DC and it creates
more congestion on the 144.39 frequency.
