John, thanks for your comment.  We must get users that travel
with their D7 or D700's to ask everywhere they go, why they are
not seeing the local recommended voice repeater frquency on
their radios when they drive into an area.. 

Now that we got most digipeatrs moving towards New-N Paradigm,
this important part about including LOCAL Voice Repeater
Frequency Object Info in the unused Btext has been overlooked by
far too many of them.
Lets spread the word.   APRS can be so helpful, and useful if
people look beyond the simple traking aspect..  It can be so
much more.

For digi sysops, see how to add this frequency object to your
digi:
