That's why I like the idea of using some identifier that won't collide
on APRS-IS (which I'm doing for an object of our club's repeater).  This
way, if someone knows they're heading up this way, they can look at the
APRS map beforehand and see the object, maybe program it in their radio,
whatever.

If by some miracle everyone were to come to a consensus about how to
name the objects and get them into APRS-IS, I'll bet a quick script
could make pretty PHG-circled maps from findu :>
