This statement misses twice: 1) a single digipeat does not, in my
experience, provide any certainty if making it into APRS-IS, and 2)
makes the totally invalid assumption that the purpose of the APRS
tracker is to make it to the internet.

I don't really care if it makes it to APRS-IS, I need to see it on RF,
in the chase vehicle!

agreed.
