The previous version of javAPRSFilter did not hold exactly to the

You read more there than is in the spec. It says t/type/call/dist That
means exactly that. Not t/type/call/call or call with wildcards.

The p filter does not use wildcards (it is, by definition, using an
implied wildcard). As to callsigns matching ILX or MKX for a prefix, I
think you will be hard pressed to fine non-NWS packets from stations
using those prefixes.
