Tangentially-related: What is the correct syntax for 70cm frequencies, 
e.g. 444.8125?

Would it be:

444.8125 *111111z4136.06N/08114.22Wr444.812MHz T131 +500

or:

444.8125 *111111z4136.06N/08114.22Wr444.8125MHz T131 +500

Note in the comment field, the first example only has three digits after 
the decimal and the second has all four.
