I can't tell you off hand what aprx does, but if you were to ask me, I'd
say I'd want it to use the outgoing TX callsign, since I made the argument
in my thesis that the last traced callsign may be used as part 97
identification. If I ever notice it doing something else, I would put it on
my list to fix it in aprx.

To give you an unopinionated answer, the specs say nothing on the issue.
