Yes, you do know who I mean. As well as the Flying J truck stop last
time I looked. I would've though you're two hops most of the time
from him. So for his objects I'd set the hops at WIDE2-1.
FWIW I happened to be in Three Hills, a small town an hours drive out
of Calgary on family business,. I was driving about and looked at
my Nuvi 360 screen. I saw a lot of APRS activity in the very near
vicinity and tracked them down. Turns out they had just finished
recovering a balloon and were having coffee. So I went and joined
him and the rest of the gang. Had a great time chatting and
learning. And that's one very nice thing about APRS.
