Hi Don,
                Yep thanks for the info I have looked at how we should
display these events Not HAMFEST but HFEST-ddx
the dd = date the x= is for findu 

From : Thanks guys !!!


Please use this format for the name of your HAMFEST object:


Use the "\h" symbol which is a bright red object...

This not only makes them stand out on the map, but also includes the DATE
(dd) in the object name to make it clear this is a future object. The "x" on
the end makes it unique so that FINDU
can find them all:

I have now done the right thing HFEST-6x  hopefully this will sort it out

Many thanks

Phillip ZL2TZE

Hi Phillip,
The problem is that there is another object named the same 'HAMFEST'
somewhere else.  UI-View or aprs.fi one will not plot objects that it thinks
are moving too fast and whichever is generating the error you show below
assumes that the hamfest object is moving since it sees another position for
it from someone else.
To fix the problem, try naming the object to something not in use elsewhere
for example, HAMFEST-NZ.
The 190335z I think is only a timestamp added by UI View.  I don't think it
has anything to do with the problem you describe.
I hope this helps.  73,
Don M. - KMØR

     Ok I run an IGATE and have a few Objects being posted ;
Now when Ui-View16 sends 1 object automatically it does this :      From www
Before anyone tells me to update to Ui-View32 I can't on this PC as it is
also running other DOS programs at the same time

*190335z4148.02S\17219.97Eh 6TH & 7TH Sept 2008 Fire Station [Location
changes too fast (>500 km/h)]
When I tell Ui-View to send  the object  manually  it is ok No 500km/h

*190335z4148.02S\17219.97Eh 6TH & 7TH Sept 2008 Fire Station
The only thing I can see that maybe causing problems is the   190335z where
is this coming from ??
  It doesn't do it to the other objects can someone tell me what is wrong
