[aprssig] TNCX setups?

I'd extend the Beacon 3 and Beacon 4 intervals out even further, and/or
reduce their paths.  No help (for it's VHF users) for a digi to transmit
it's own position packet more broadly than across the next digi hop in all
directions.  Only reduces available airtime for all the other _users_ of the
VHF freq.

A full service WIDEn-N/SSn-N digi like this sample setup (first one below)
will be in a very good wide area network location, in cooperation with all
the neighbors, and so will surely be seen on the internet too with only a
minimal VHF digipath.

Most often these days, a simple traceable fill-in digi is far better for our
shared VHF network.  A traceable fill-in digi operates packets addressed via
WIDE1-1 or it's own callsign ONLY, as in the final (second one below) sample
setup.
(UICall 1: WIDE1-1 and have UIFlood and UITrace empty.)
