I got a note from a new mobile that is not getting
in well in the Northern Virginia.  Say the Vienna
Fairfax, Falls Church area.

I zoomed in and see more than a full 60 surrounding
stations within 10 miles and not one digi.  Nearest digi
is about 15 miles away.  In looking around, I still
see a lot of people trying to use WIDE (obsolete)
RELAY (obsolete) and some using WIDE1-1 that
may not be getting out because there may not be a 
FILL-IN digi running as WIDE1-1.. in that area.

Ayway, looks like a lot of activity....  but also 
looks like someone needs to look very closely
at fine-tuning that very busy area and looking
for where some WIDE1-1's might need to go.
