Im confused why you are entering this object in UIvew.
A (home station) should not be putting out these objects.  There are many reasons as explained on the "localinfo" web page: http://www.ew.usna.edu/~bruninga/localinfo.html

1) The home station cannot hear the whole channel and will collide with other users when it transmits

2) The home station uses a PATH other than simplex direct.  Thus, it will flood to big an area with this voice frequency object adding QRM and defeating the purpose of showing WHERE this frequency can be used.

Yes, that symbol is for a mic-E voice repeater.

Choose the ANTENNA symbol (its a lower case "r").

> if I include a + in the name, ie. 147.090+

It is in FINDU but when you go to display it, the display function in FINDU is confused by the +.  Ignore that.  These objects are only inended for local RF anyway.

Or you can leave out the + since everyone knows that a 147 repeater requires + anyway.
