Note that none of my discussion or objects mentioned pertain to object name,
findU has always accepted any characters in the object name so K4HG-WL is
ACCEPTED as an object call, as is WL-K4HG, K-4-H-G, and so. 

I'd still object to object calls that could be wildcard gated like WL-K4HG, but
otherwise I have no major problems. I will say I do not like needing to grab the
SSID from somewhere else in the packet to get the actual callsign of the gate,
to me having the call stand out in a list due to the -WL does not make up for
this inconvenience, but that is a personal feeling rather than a strong opinion
I'd argue over...
