 From the source
/* Add heading and speed to the object. Note that maximum speed is
        used and that the heading can have leading zeros per APRS spec.
        Maximum speed for imperial system is 999 mph and for the metric
        system this is 539 kmh. */

Anyway, digi_ned was generating those objects automatically. As the 
person who requested them is no longer using APRS. I've disabled that 
function (they will be generated if someone asks for them), which is 
unlikely.
