With the height that the Horus guys get on their baloons, I don't think
that only going via one digi is going to be a problem :) They'll most
likely be hitting multiple digis across a very very wide area. You have to
remember that they'll have line of sight to quite a large geographical area
once the payload is in the air, and any path other than a WIDE2-1 could
very easily flood the network.

Mark/Grant how much power are you running on the APRS payload?
