This sounds like a good idea for the alt-channels off of 144.39. Put
up a super duper high node that hears lots and talks little. Add a
few fill-ins as needed. Put an Igate and a backup on the channel..
This prevents the exponential degradation caused by hidden
transmitters and multiple digis. I've been running recently with a
one-hop path on an 9600 alt net and I'm seeing what appears to be a
significantly greater number of packets showing up on the APRS-IS
archives (..findu raw packets)
