After I sent that I realized I stated it badly.  Without a path, the 
concern is that it would not be picked up by any local fill-in digis and 
out to a digipeater.  And it's not where on the airfield he's parked but 
having which airfield he's at he want to get out.

Trying to ensure adequate coverage without QRMing the system
