Could you be more specific and list the digipeaters and what their 
problems were?  You have to remember DFW airport is about the size of 
Manhattan and the DFW metroplex covers a lot of area.  I am in 
Arlington TX about 19 miles SW of the airport.  Did you see N5RFX-6 
(fill in digi) or N5RFX-8 (igate)?
