True Objects have a specific format and are handled in the varopus APRS software packages (UI-View, etc).
What I call a "Pseudo-Object" can be made, on your D700, D7, D710,... type radio, simply by changing the MYCALL to that for your FD site. Also change all the other important parameters and the location to that of the FD site. Put YOUR call (& any other info) in the Comment field so you are legally ID'd. Then beacon it every 30 minutes.
This is easier on a D700 (D710) by using another PM.
