And I forgot, did you see the bulletins I transmit of upcoming ham club 
meetings and swap meets?   

These are being sent by the M0CYP-developed UI-View plugin "APRS 
Events".  I have the announcements for a given meeting set to start at 
15:00 hours the day before the meeting (to pick up the afternoon 
drive-time "audience" the day before), and expire about an hour before 
the end of the event.   

APRS Events operates from an easily-edited text file list. I have the 
meetings and swapmeets queued up for the next six months. In turn, I 
have APRS Events transmit on a path via an explicit digipeater callsign 
(N6EX-1) rather than WIDE2-2 so the bulletins tend to blanket only the 
San Gabriel Valley area (where the clubs in question are) rather than 
all of the greater L.A. basin via multiple WIDE2-2s simultaneously.
