Easy answer.  Does a mobile at your location get into the other digi?  If
so, then there is -no- need for your digi.

Another answer.  Is there a need for HT coverage at your location?  IE, is
there something special at your location that is unique and would expect
to see a number of HAMS walking around with APRS HT's and nee ing to
communicate?  If so, THEN, does the other digi hear an HT from your
location?  If yes, again, then your digi is not needed. If no and ONLY IF
there remains the HT need, then yes.
