As our club is participating in the fieldday next weekend, I have been 
asked to announce the station via APRS and/or APRS-IS:

See here:

Now, talking about this with some fellow hams, it would perhaps also be 
interesting to announce the other fieldday stations in our region (or in 
all of Belgium) too.

So, my question:
is there a limit on the number of objects/items that can be announced by 
an APRS station (on RF or on the net?)

Based on the information I receive, there are some 30 fieldday station 
in all of ON. (5 of them in the coastal region).

BTW. Is the information still correct that a fieldday station should be 
announced as FD=<callsign> and that the symbol is a tent?
