Be advised that because no country uses 1 or 2 letter callsigns, many APRS-IS servers and APRS clients consider callsigns that are less than 3 characters to be invalid.  Also, a problem seen with the Sprouls' email server early on (I think they fixed this) was that it would ack back using a callsign instead EMAIL causing confusion with many clients.  Things to consider when looking at doing short callsigns and/or callsign substitution with server applications.
