Ah because of your situation the whole world has to jump to your wishes?
Many countries have special call groups for unattended stations, for
instance pi1apd is the aprs digipeater for apeldoorn.
All digipeaters here have to have a special licence and as a result
always have a vanity call.
Even new manned stations have vanity calls by default for the past
decade or more here.
