)145.250N7!4833.53N/12307.05Wr/A=000840 145.250MHz t131 N7JN
I added the N7 to assist in making the object name unique. There's a
145.250, 145.250-, 145.2500, 145.250 - (yes, an embedded space) and
145.250-R objects at http://aprs.fi/145.250* You might want to put
something different there to keep it more globally unique.
But the /A is probably not necessary whereas a PHG or Rnnn (Range)
specification would be more helpful.
The 145.250MHz seems redundant, but is required (and is Case Sensitive)
to make this QSY/Tunable on Yaesu's FTM-350. You might even be required
to drop the /A= term for this to work on more APRS radios.
Also, the lower-case t implies narrow-FM. Is it really? If wide-FM, it
should be a capital T.
The decimal (.8) is non-standard and has been removed.
Is there a tone on the repeater? That should be included.
If there's a net held on that repeater, you can add that information.
And the options seem to be unlimited...
