Re: How often does an APRS DIGI need to I'd?

I think you might be misunderstanding WIDE2-1. That is a single hop just like WIDE1-1. (It’s the -1 that counts). But it has the advantage of not brining up all those WIDE1-1 digis that are only fill ins.
My house is a fill-in WIDE1-1 but each time it digipeats, it messes up the TV. I don’t mind that when there is a local mobile passing by (very rare) but it is frustrating when someone with a high location (such as a digi) uses the path of WIDE1-1 and squiggles my TV on every beacon 24/7/365…

I have 8 digi's and I make them I'd once an hour and the path set for wide1-1 consideration for it reaching an igate or 2 in case one igate goes down it would digi through another one to reach another igate. Wide2-1 is a waste of space for a digi especially ones in high places as I have seen it happen in Colorado. The only job if the digi is to get a signal to the nearest igate ONLY. IMHO.
