The altitude really isn't necessary information, especially when you
include the range.  When you see R95m you are going to know it is
quite a bit higher than average terrain.  I would lieave it out for a
shorter packet, or add another bit of information that might be more

Repeater objects should really be beaconed from a digipeater.  These
look like wide coverage repeaters, so it may be appropriate to have
the object beaconed from more than one digipeater.  It looks like
there is a digipeater UCAPK very close to your repeater object, which
would be the ideal place to originate it.
