Right. I can't tell if WA9ARB is doing that, but isn't making it to an
IGate, or if he is really beaconing infrequently. As far as his objects
being useful, perhaps he could send them every 10 minutes, but
either direct, or with one hop at the most.

It's a bit difficult to tell. It seems to be a mixed message. Perhaps we
should abandon using the frequency for the object name and use the
repeater callsign instead. This would standardize on having the frequency
in the comment. That way the object names would be unique.

See my previous post for the objects generated by WA9ARB. Any idea
why they wouldn't show up on a D700?
