[aprssig] Help with repeater beacon

We're having some problems with the "TUNE" function of D710s and D72s in the 
Atl area.

I'm beaconing the following text from my Tx/Igate:
;147.15NGA*111111z3414.21N/08409.60WrT143 R60m NET2000TU Cumming,GA
which seems to match, per character, what's on the localinfo.html page:
;FFF.FFxyz*111111zDDMM.hhN/DDDMM.hhWrTnnn RXXm NETxxxxxx MTGxxxxx .........

We can see the objects show up correctly in the station list of the 710s and 
72s, but no amount of pushing the "tune" button does the trick.  Meanwhile, 
tune DOES work for stations that include their freq in their status text:

APRS.FI has all the raw packets, or I can provide more info.  Anyone know what 
I'm doing wrong?
