Currently it appears you are beaconing every 20 minutes which would
probably be reasonable. I would probably ensure you are using a
WIDE1-1 so the object doesn't "leak" to too many digipeater
sites. I'd also be tempted to put an email address in your packet
so you can get complaints. <smile>

We had someone do an APRS beacon 300 kms away from his QTH a while
back. He was a few hundred metres out which is why he was
noticed. I suspect, but I'm not sure, that if there is a closer
igate to the object that the remote igate will beacon the object for
you. But I don't know that so you might want to do a bit of
testing with a local RF only station to see what happens. And maybe
a RF only station in the remote object site.

As Bob points out some might look at this as spam. Is your APRS
frequency quite busy out there?
