This is a powerful technique (below using a D700 or other APRS radio), and will put it on the local map. But you will not be able to use the Hyphen in the 3rd place as in our desired nomenclature... for a nine character name:
But you can at least do a 6 character name: FDxxxx... and this will be found with the FD* wildcard! Great!

>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.
