If you are traveling on I-75 North/South you will need to use a UNPROTO 
path of WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2.  Four of the North Central Florida digipeater's
WM3B-10, W4DFU-10, K8RAG-10, and NF4CQ-10 do not support RELAY, WIDE, or 
TRACE.  These 4 digi's are all "L" digi's with max useage of WIDE3-3. 
So if your coming this way set your path for WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2.  This 
should work for any digi that supports WIDEn-N while mobile to the 
Hamvention in Dayton.

You might want to pass this along to anyone else in area.
