[aprssig] Wow, what a lot of traffic!

	I was in Los Angeles a few days ago, and the amount of packets I saw 
was simply incredible!  At one point I saw a TFC packet go by on my 
HamHUD, and it said something like "310 in 10 minutes".  That's 
something like one packet every 1.9 seconds!  Simply an incredible 
amount of traffic, and I sure don't see that here in the "sticks".  I 
think we see something on the order of 50 in 10 minutes here in Clovis, 
NM, but I haven't checked in some time now, and it could be different.

	Just to let everybody know, when I was in LA, I changed my UNPROTO to 
WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1, and I also changed the SB parameters to give one packet 
every TWO miles.  I certainly hope that was sufficient to avoid my 
causing any problems with congestion on the frequency.
