Keith and Bob,
This is all very interesting and I am still digesting it, but this 
unfortunately does not explain why I am not getting my repeater objects 
to display on the screen or on the d-700 list.
By the way, Keith, the D-star icon appears on Ul-View northwest of 
Madison, Wi and, as I said, on the D-700 list.  Hope that answers that 
question.
Here is a thought...are the icons supported by the radio just for the 
radio alone?..not for stuff coming from rf?
