You are right that my concern was the use of the echolink station's  
callsign. I don't much care whether it is a ham callsign or a tactical  
call. I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "Having multiple  
software/stations use the same callsign will cause loop checking  
algorithms to sometimes delete non-duplicate packets." but you are the  
expert on that and I'll defer to your knowledge.
