Bob, You are talking about the USA here.

Not all countries will bother with your "New N Paradigm" when the original
RELAY WIDE TRACE works very well.

REMEMBER that the US is only one of a large number of countries where there
are customers that would be interested in the new digipeater.

Again REMEMBER it's not the future for APRS in all countries of the world
and may never be.

You assisted in created a global system which is great. Some of us will
never see more than a few hundred APRS stations in our countries. The
original RELAY WIDE TRACE WIDEn-N & TRACEn-N works very well for all these
