I didn't say you were in Florida. I said that it looks like Joel KI4T is
in Florida. Would you care to comment on Joel's comments? Is a WIDE1-1
digi needed in your area? Now you have UI-View running, you should have
a better idea of what is around you. What is the topography like? Are
any of the WIDEn-N digis around you on hilltops? What is the terrain
like? If a WIDE1-1 digi is not needed, I would agree with Joel's
comments. If mobile stations have trouble hitting the WIDEn-N digis from
there, perhaps a WIDE1-1 digi would be a good addition. While it's
possible for someone else to do an analysis, you are right there. You
can look out the window and see the topography. You know where
the digis and the IGates are.

Anyone still running the 16 bit version of UI-View? I don't know if
that's a red herring with a D700 or not.
