Yes, it is unfortunate that a few states went to 20 KHz spacing
when all the radios these days more or less can work pretty well
at the original 15 KHz spacing used in most of the other states.
But putting that aside...

The reason we are looking for a FFF.FF frequency is because
there will be lots of these local objects and to make sense out
of all of them on the APRS-IS, we will need to use all three of
the FFF.FFxyz (xyz) bytes to differentiate them.
