This was the basis for my question, does it handle it correctly, not only 
placing the correct formatted text so the other radios can be interpreted by 
it properly, but all around.

The path is an issue, a downside is you cannot chose a path for the objects 
in uiview {not that I have found}. The only other choice for most will be 
implementing a beacon from a local digi.

Unfortunately beacons from a digi will never contain ALL the area 
information and will be subject to bias and not rationality.

Looking for a better way:
