[aprssig] APRS callsigning for internationally travelling hams?

Having the prefix is a requirement for transmission at least in the UK and
Spain. So I guess for Europe. Even an APRS transmission needs to have the
prefix. It's accepted that the prefix can go in the comment field as it
won't fit in the callsign field usually

I was just concerned about the legalities, rather than the logical or
pragmatic aspects. Political law and regulation doesn't always have a
relationship to logic or natural law, especially when dealing with
non-citizen foreigners. :-(

Last time I saw those rules, it was a regulation (not a courtesy) from the
Canadian Ministry of Communications, but my hardcopy of the Canadian
regulations is 17 years old, and I can't find the relevant current version
of the regs now. All due respect to my Canadian neighbors, but the
government website for Industry Canada was poorly laid out and extremely
difficult to search, the last time I tried to look (hopefully, it's been
improved since then).
