The original idea was to have TEMPn-N digipeating in all mobiles so that
they could be called on under special circumstances to fill-in digipeat by
just getting the driver to the area and he would not have to do any
configuration in the field. It would just work...
In that sense, having home stations also available in this shadow TEMPn-N
network is probably a good idea. I think it is a good idea but I am open
for discussion. The only down side I can see is that if some not-so-well
informed users start using it routinely, then it will be a nightmare. And
be difficult to shut off.
It's kinda like having 911. It is a really great capability... as long as
people only use it when needed. But a disaster when people call 911 to
find out the time.
So far, I have not heard of any abuse, nor that much use for that matter...
there might still be events where tempN-n is needed but you would be very far in the wilderness if that is needed.
