There is not a single tracker that places Tnnn "anywhere in the
comment".  The only packets that contain Tnnn are the ones that
are written there as part of the comment by the owner.  Or the
D710 that writes it there automatically.  But this has no impact
on what other trackers send.

They can send whatever they want.  The issue was what XASTIR
automatically inserts.  And it should not insert altitude
/Axxxxxx unilaterally in front of other possibly formatted text
of the sender which will be screwed up if the altitude is
inserted first.  It should be inserted on the end of the packet
as originally invisioned.
