Great work!  Comments:...

I think you need to implement the usual APRS decaying algorithm for new objects.  Otherwise, the only people that will see them are people who were logged on at the instant of creation.

This will fail the most common application... That is, see something happen, post an object, send out a message to the world to "see this", but when they log on, it is never seen again..

So I'd suggest a packet at creation, then maybe 2.5, 5 and then 10 minute refresh.  Then keep it at 10 minutes for the next 12 hours.  Then automatically cease transmitting it, or even consider sending a kill..
