No, I didn't mean to imply that you didn't like it, but that fifth
digit wasn't represented as "PERIOD" in aprs.fi. As it seems, it still
isn't represented. 
Here's the presentation of LD1FA at 17:42 local/18:42 finnish time:
||2009-01-07 22:41:21z - 2009-01-12 16:41:33z
||effekt 25W, antenne HAAT 49 m, forsterkning 4 dBi rundstråle,
||rekkevidde 38.3 km
from the raw data:

The last digit telling that there are four beacons per hour hasn't
been translated, but transferred to the place before the digi name
(second line above; "4 FRSTAD W3"), so it isn't quite there.

The directive digi LD4HH is fb represented as directive in the text:
||2007-05-13 14:00:41z - 2009-01-12 16:45:08z
||effekt 9W, antenne HAAT 390 m, forsterkning undefined dBi 225°,
||rekkevidde 66.7 km
