Beats me, but I don't know how many times I've tried to convince some 
new APRS user of this:

Just because your station shows up on FindU does not necessarily mean 
your station is configured correctly.

Just because your station doesn't show up on FindU doesn't necessarily 
mean your station is broken.

I hope in my various comments I don't sound disparaging to FindU, 
APRS-IS, or the people involved.  They are very useful tools, and maybe 
most important of all, they attract new people to amateur radio.  It's 
just too bad I can't get my wife to remember that, when she starts 
wondering where I'm at, FindU will tell  her. (:
