[aprssig] Question about the new STANDARD

I think this question is not so much about the changes in the network
being proposed, but more about day to day operation.

If your home station's outbound path was W2-2, why not keep it that
way?  The changes only affect mobile stations since they are the only
ones supposed to use RELAY (now WIDE1-1).

If you want to get out one tier, use k4rok-10 as your path, or WIDE2-1.
If you want to get out two tiers, use k4rok-10, WIDE2-1 as your path, or
generically WIDE2-2.

Home stations should never use WIDE1-1 in any portion of their path,
no one should use WIDE1-1 after the first hop.

Hope this is a help.
