Yes, see:

compatibility tests

Or:

)145.250N7!4833.53N/12307.05Wr/A=000840 145.250MHz t131 N7JN

I added the N7 to assist in making the object name unique. There's a 
145.250, 145.250-, 145.2500, 145.250 - (yes, an embedded space) and 
145.250-R objects at http://aprs.fi/145.250*  You might want to put 
something different there to keep it more globally unique.

But the /A is probably not necessary whereas a PHG or Rnnn (Range) 
specification would be more helpful.

The 145.250MHz seems redundant, but is required (and is Case Sensitive) 
to make this QSY/Tunable on Yaesu's FTM-350.  You might even be required 
to drop the /A= term for this to work on more APRS radios.

Also, the lower-case t implies narrow-FM.  Is it really?  If wide-FM, it 
should be a capital T.

The decimal (.8) is non-standard and has been removed.

Is there a tone on the repeater?  That should be included.

If there's a net held on that repeater, you can add that information.

And the options seem to be unlimited...
