Good point, Kriss; mobile stations setting a path of only one digipeater hop
is enough to serve most of their "actually-interested audience members."
In mountainous California, only WIDE1-1 is a better path choice than only
WIDE2-1 because so many of our high elevation digipeaters are now setup as
"WIDE1-1 only" digipeaters (which are heard by a IGate).

Zoom all the way out to get the whole view.

The large gap in data is I-86 in South Central NY State, not a digi to be
had despite manually sending atop 

hills along the way. I never heard any activity or saw the S-meter move in
that area.
