My earlier posting about how to implement the new paradigm in UI-View32 
leads me to ask the following question:

Do we do nothing differently than I had earlier published than just 
eliminating support for RELAY?

It would seem to me that we don't have to do anything...just take RELAY out 
of our ALIAS list and let UI-View32 do its thing.

This way the only change required is the mobiles' unproto path changes from:

RELAY,WIDE2-2  (pretty much the standard around here...we're rural with high 


WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2   (for three hops)


WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 (for two hops)

We are having a state-wide APRS meeting at the Des Moines hamfest the 3rd 
week of this month. It would be nice to get everyone on the same page at 
that meeting.
