[aprssig] Legality of APRS Tactical Callsign Use long after anEvent is Over

I use a tactical callsign for several events. Just put your real callsign in
the status message and set the message transmit interval to 1/1. No problemo
with FCC. But a little misleading to continue after the event is over.

What do you mean "still" legal?  It has always been legal to use 
tactical callsigns for any length of time, as long as the station 
callsign is given once every ten minutes.  It is not necessarily good 
practice to continue the use of tactical callsigns after an event has 
ended, however it is far from illegal.
