Yep.  That is correct and is because the parts of the areas I am in when not
at work need that to get to our main city IGate.  I will try scaling them
back, but I don't make it to my IGate then which is 80 miles from me and the
closest IGate.

Thanks for the info!

Fine.  And I agree with Kai LA3QMA.  Yes, WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 is a good routine
setting for mobile or portable stations in North America at least.  It's
only that I noticed KB8ZGL-12 and KB8ZGL-1 were unfortunately set to
WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2 instead (three VHF digipeater hops in all directions).
