It is redundan to have the frequency in both the object name and in the text.  Leave out the one in the text.

But this appears to be from a UIview home station.  It was never intended for these objects to come from home statiosn beacuse they add QRM for several reasons as mentioned in my previous email.  If the UIview is being used as a digipeater AND if it isvery high compared to surrpunding terrain, hen that is OK, but the PATH for that station shouold be reduced to 0 hops to keep this packet local in the area of coverage.

Othewise it is QRM out of the area where it can be used.

Of course there are always exceptions.  But that is the basis of this frequency object design.
