|The SRRC joins a growing list of Illinois Section APRS digipeaters using the new digipath addresses to help reduce packets out of the Illinois Section.
At the Starved Rock Radio Club meeting on 2/07/05, Eldon KB9PZA updated the digipeater W9MKS-15 running under UI-View to add the new alias IL and 39LNK to the W-R-T standard digipeater alias.
KB9PZA also reduced the path to Wide3-3 to help alleviate the congestion brought by too long paths used in APRS and will monitor this for the near term.
Thanks, Eldon KB9PZA and the SRRC.
