Looks like things are quite under control.  Nice page.  I see
only 2 people using WIDE5-5, and only one using WIDE4-4.  All
the rest are 3-3 or below.  Im beginning to think that the "W4"
recommendation in New Mexico might not be a "recommendation" but
the original definition of a "limit".

But in the long run, for consistency, I think we need to move
toward that entry in all digipeaters beacon information to be a
"Wn" -recommendation-.  That way it can be tailored to each
digi.  Some very remote digis might need a higher receommended
value of N then those in the suburbs.

If any of my references or documents infer it is a "limit",
remind me so I can change them to "receommendations".
