Doesn't even need to be in _that_ packet, just _some_ packet, or
even CW ID, and the packet can be set to go out to NO PATH AT ALL.

As long as you are identifying every 10 minutes (if it has
transmitted at all in the previous 10 minutes) in some manner,
whether AX.25 or CW, then you're meeting the FCC identification
