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

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