[OZAPRS] VK1RGI-1 config changes

Is the digi RHR using ui-digi? If so then take a look at the following setting


// UI Generic Calls (up to 8)

UIDigiCall = WIDE7-7, WIDE6-6, WIDE5-5, WIDE4-4, WIDE3-3, WIDE3-2

What this does is to truncate excessive path abuse by simply stripping the original destination and making it into a single hop by replacing the wideN-n to the ui-digi callsign.

This is the better option than just putting a blanket ban of one particular digi...

Hi Graeme

yeah, true. I would suggest that for UI digi, RHR implements geofencing
on what it repeats. (which dire wolf provides)  That would remove a
quantity of the Sydney traffic. We dont want the Sydney APRS location or
weather  traffic.  There are many igates around for those interested in
travelling traffic further afield. I suggest to the RHR sysop, that they
upgrade the system.

In the meantime, this morning I have made the following changes :

- I have returned RHR back to digipeat status  = yes

- I have modified the WIDE trap to permit 2-2s

- I have added supression of digipeats from the Sydney basin (using

keep an eye on it and see if its working like you think it should.

Ginini stitches the Riverina together, as the Riverina digis (to my
knowledge) cannot reliably hear each other, the setup of double repeats
in the Riverina , and really, from the coast to say Griffith, need to be
