I know you weren't complaining.
I don't see 6 character grids as a solution as they are not conveyed on-air for FT8 & FT4, the most popular modes. I recall there is a 6 character grid transmission on VHF, I don't recall the mode used.
Transmission of your true State as a final free-text message is the only quick solution I see. Its not ideal, as most users would prefer to know the State prior to making a decision to initiate a QSO with you. Then you have the users (I suspect a significant number) who don't read or ignore what is happening on their screen for which a free-text message would be of no value.
