      Buit if you leave the T2 set up as a WIDE1, you will definitely be
      "spamming" the network as you drive it around town. It will be a WIDE1-1
      digi full time repeating every WIDE1-1 packet that it hears. Not
      recommended configuration.

      as a local digi for my MT-300 on a bicycle!
