Actually, WIDE2-2 is shorter too!
Send WIDE2-2 get: DIGI1,WIDE2-1 and then several DIGI1,DIGI2,WIDE2
Send W11,W21 get: DIGI1,WIDE1,DIGI2-1 and then several
So the savings is significant. I think the overall value to the APRS
network is to educate people to only use the WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 path if they
are in an area which has lots of WIDE1-1 fill in digis, or they live near
one and it is the only way to get out.
