I'd suggest going in the reverse order on the LTP  statements start
parameter.   The first beacon should be the lowest freqeuency and
longest path to announce your existence on the network.  Follow up
beacons would then be more frequent with shorter paths...

> LTP 1    APN383
> LTP 2    APN383
> LTP 3    APN383 VIA WIDE2-1  <== notice this is a 1 hop path.
> LTP 4    APN383 VIA WIDE2-2
