I se a potentially fatal assumption here - that the same proportion 
of users in all areas use the packet and FM birds.  I am one that 
would screw up that assumption.  I don't do the pacsats, and I'm not 
likely to. :)  Too many like me, or too many pacsat only users and 
the results are skewed.  In fact, it might be useful to have separate 
digital and voice maps.
