[RDD] Best way to do a Satellite program with local inserts?

Maybe not even the best way but a good way?
I run two sat services, one is news at the top of the hour that is always 3 min.
That works great by switching to the service and then a 3 min sleep command.
ST 0 3 1!
However I haven't figured out a clean way to handle the program that we run during the hour.
It provides triggers during the hour to start our local inserts and I have it "working", in that I do receive the triggers via GPI and run our inserts, but I wind up with a log FULL of messy macros.
My big problem is the wait till the next GPI.
Currently I'm handling it with:
a macro to switch to the service;
then a null macro with a stop to wait for the GPI;
Macro for the switch to play local insert
Macro to return to Sat.
and repeat twice to the end of the hour.
What I need is a way to accomplish this activity that leaves an (operator) readable log.
The poor kids go nuts when a cue of four (or more) macros just go blip and suddenly an event that was at the bottom the cue shoots to the top.
Thanks for your help!
