But *every* digi is supposed to also respond to RELAY and
do callsign substitution... so it should not matter where one
is when using that path.  The problem with trackers is 100%
congestion  on the inputs of most digis who are hearing all 
the QRM from the suprrounding 300 miles.  Thats why
separating the local user inputs to 144.99 (if available 
in your area) is the way to solve that problem...
