[aprssig] NetNodes, the future

  I set my Kenwoods to RELAY,WIDE,WIDE.  I haven't tried to set them for 
RELAY,WIDE2-2.  Now, with the changes to LinkN-n, etc. for whatever 
expressway you drive, it is more complicated than ever.  If someone can 
write me personally to help clear the mud on this issue, I would greatly 
appreciate it.  I am very confused on that issue.   If different regions of 
the country all set different parameters, you have to keep setting your rigs 
over and over depending on how far you travel and or where you travel. 
Hopefully I am not making it out to be more than it is but I won't know how 
to set my radio up for trips now.
