Hi Richard,

This sounds similar to some discussion that I have hear either here or
maybe on the "Fixing Layer 2" list.  Someone had proposed the idea of
smart digipeaters that automatically learn their neighboring
digipeaters and only digipeat packets based on that type of criteria. 
Obviously this would require more processing power than what is
available in a portable radio, but it may be a start.
