      APRS coordinates are ddmm.mmXTdddmm.mmYS where X is N or S, Y is E or W,
      T is the table or overlay, and S is the symbol. Your two bad ones had
      dddmm.mmm for the E/W. They should work better as:

      )G4ILO-P!5439.29N/00314.96WrSale Fell 145.550 FM
      )G4ILO-Q!5439.03N/00308.82WrSkiddaw 145.550 FM

      This'll be really easy once I add the capability to send any of your
      configured objects to any callsign as an Item-As-Message. The advantage
      of this approach is that you can "push" objects out to RF stations
      through remote bi-directional IGates, provided that the receiving
      station is considered to be "recently" "local".

      > Thanks, Lynn. If you get a moment, could you take a look at the messages to G4ILO on aprs.fi and see if you can see anything wrong with the second and subsequent objects? The first one appeared but was out in the sea due to a longitude conversion error. I fixed that and tried to change the icon to an antenna, also played with what text I can fit in the message, but none of the others appeared as objects although they were received as sent. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the name being the same as the first one sent, but it's probably just something dumb that I did.
