Yes, it is very frustrating.   We need people to look at how their DIGIS,
and FREQ objects show up on the front panel of the mobile radios to get
them to understand that formatting is important.

All we need is a few motivated people like yourself to check all the digis
in their area and make sure they are putting out the correct formats.
Then we could clean this up nicely.

The Yaesu FTM-350 REQUIRES the frequency at the beginning of the comment!
And they also require it to be MHz.
