This is a Mic-E compressed-format packet that codes part of the lat/long
position information into the destination field to create the shortest
possible packet burst.
Since APRS operates in unconnected mode, you normally never address a
specific station. The destination address is basically overhead, and can
be "stolen" to code other information.
