Sorry Jason, I realize how much you like APRS. But you are dealing with 
egos here. In the northeast we have it many times worse. I have to run 
50 watts and a beam to get my WX reports 1 hop to the local digi (7 
miles los) with flooded traffic from the greater metro area of 
Eastern/Central MA, CT RI and NH. We still have a groups of "operators" 
running RELAY,WIDE3-3 every 10 minutes over 120 miles away that are 
killing us.

With the problems with UI-Digi, even a WIDE3-3 is like WIDE,WIDE3-3 
which makes tons of copies all over the place. Spanning 200+ miles. 
It's a friggin mess up here. We were recommending a directed path of 
<localdigi>,WIDE. This should produce no dupes and still takes most 
packets out 60+ miles

Sorry Bob, your message is NOT getting out there. I'm getting horse 
repeating it.
