On my think its better to put normal ham callsign in Fromcall field of
this packets, at least anybody can know who is sent it and in case of
questions or corrections will be possible to find contact e-mail of

Just my five cents.

Even K4HG agree in this case ;)

"I would much prefer you use your own callsign as the originating
station for the packets, rather than sending a packet that appears to  
come from another ham."
