Or send them as 3rd party with a full 9 character name.

This may or may not work depending on how the client
software treats a 3rd party pcaket.  APRSdos will receive the
full 9 character name just fine.   Probaby most others will
too, but be sure to check it before committing to this

The only thing that REQUIRES a callsign to be 6 characters
+ SSID is a transmitting TNC.  On receipt, most software
may not be so picky...
