It's not too late to fix it. I see it's going out every 8 minutes on
TCPIP. Being an IGate, I presume it's going out on RF as well.
If it can't be "fixed" perhaps you could generate an object in the
recommended format. People "near" Foothills will see it, but an
object in the HFEST-DDx format should be more recognizable
has a hamfest. The talk-in frequency should help too.
