I'm sorry, but this does not fit with the design of APRS. Use of  
tactical callsigns is an important part of the utility of the service.  
These are fully legal in most countries as long as the real callsign  
appears in other places or in other packets. If tactical callsigns are  
not legal in your country, then don't use them, the choice is entirely  
yours. Remember that if a tactical callsign is transmitted by an  
Internet Gate, the tactical callsign IS NOT the callsign used in the  
AX-25 originating field. As both Pete and I explained, the packet in  
question was not transmitted by any APRS program that adheres to the  
APRS Spec, and we both strongly believe it was not transmitted at all  
in this form.
