   By the way, you can use http://aprs.fi/14*.* and also click on repeaters 
which have a '+' in there, the + character is properly URL encoded here. 
Sorry for the shameless plug, I just couldn't resist.

   Second that - it's nice and interesting to see repeater object usage on 
a global scale. Also, if I'm going to travel somewhere, I'm going to look 
it up on a map before I go. Yes, I might also check the local repeater 
directory, if it's available. :)
