No, and I admit that the WIDE9 may be just faulty memory on my part.

Well, that may depend on where you're at.  I did a findu on KD5XB and 
found that the "nearby stations" list ran out to nearly 100 miles, 
whereas mine goes to 25.  I think that indicates more traffic in my 
area. I don't think north AL needs traffic from 400 miles away, while 
your part of the country may welcome it.
