[aprssig] AJ3U-5 Sat Packets

When you create web pages and stats based on the APRS IS data, if you 
get land based packets that "look" like they came from a satellite, 
then you do not have the real data. You have someone's made up 
satellite packets.

When you only have 30 odd lines to show the last real satellite 
packets, you don't want it clogged up with ground based faked packets.

It is a constant battle to keep having to code out other packets that 
may interfere.

Like APRS Spam, a packet says it came from a sat when it did not.
