Great!  Glad you chose the formatting that way.

One thing you might consider is that anyone that sees this
object will also see its location too.  And they have GPS so
they can drive right to it.  So instead of putting the position
into the text, you might consider on the day of the event,
changing the text to include the TALK-IN frequency.  So mobile
hams can then checkin and get any added info.

Be sure to use the correct format "146.xxxMHz..." as the first
text, so that D710's can tune it in with just the TUNE button.
