[aprssig] AJ3U-5 Sat Packets

If you use anything that looks anything like the real callsigns it is going to mess with the findu's and igates of the world.

I was sending a packet which "looked" like pcsat was sending posits.

BIg no no.

I ended up making up a call, which i feel is still naughty, but the lesser of the evils.

We should really be using objects.

It annoys me to see a map littered with peoples expierments of sat tracking objects.

If you do attempt it, do it in house, compare to a real satellite tracking package and then release it to the world.

For example my misse5 iss object, has NTP and KEPS downloaded daily and is updated every minute.

I assume that is good as I am going to get and is suitable for releasing to "other" applications
