So Bob, you're tell me that if I end up doing an APRS message queriable 
EchoLink server and if I generate Item-In-Message format responses, I 
might be the first to actually use the feature?  Do you know if the 
D7/D700 (both doubtful) or D710 (maybe?) or any other APRS client in the 
world actually parses this correctly?  Any chance for an 
Object-In-Message format using something other than the ) as the leading 
character?  That way I could continue to keep the ddhhmmz timestamp of 
last update from EchoLink in the object.

I'm even willing to sacrifice putting the <location> string at the end 
of the message in order to make room for the {ack and message prefixing 

Lynn (D) - KJ4ERJ - Still hoping to find a use for the code!
