Keith, thanks for the plug on the repeater object...
But if I might phrase it slightly differently... The way I
approach it is that, "for every digi's footprint, there can be
defined the best-voice-repeater-recommendation for that digi's
So in that case, the voice and digital area's don't have to
"match" necessarily, but for each digi, there should be one best
The reason I think this is a safe approach is that the coverage
area for a digi is always smaller than a similarly located voice
repeater (packets need 100% error free)... SO it is easy to
make a 1-for-1 recommendation of a voice repeater for each digi,
than to make the reverse (a digi for each voice repeater)...
Something like that
