[aprssig] Newbie Path Question

Looking at aprs.fi it looks like your closest digipeater is KB8CVP-7 
about 45 miles away and the nearest igate is N3WWN-3 about 91 miles 
away.  Both are a long ways for an HT power level on packet.  You should 
not use wide2-1 and wide2-2 together, it should be wide1-1,wide2-2
