new-N APRS paradigm works!

Bob Bruninga, WB4APR, posted this on the APRSSIG today:

Taking a fresh look at the local network last night I noticed that
the New-N Paradigm has made a tremendous difference.

80% WIDE2-2 or less!
11% are using W3...
9% are still using RELAY and WIDE. (was 80% in 2005)

This is the Washington/Baltimore area which is the highest
density APRS on earth. And with over 250 stations and
over 50 digipeters showing up in the area, the channel
still has some dead times of many seconds, sometimes as
many as 10 seconds between packets. (at ground level)
making it much easier to be heard and thus, better

The real evidence is in the packet counts per hour per station:
Only a half dozen or less stations are hitting routine packet
counts of over 20/hr. Whereas before, we had probably
2 dozen stations with packet counts of 50 to 100/hr. All
caused by all the DUPES of the old RELAY and WIDE system.

The New-N Paradigm WORKS!
Spread the word...

Tell them to GOOGLE for "fix14439"
