Remember, MYCALL goes out in the AX.25 header, it'll be limited to 6 
alphanumeric and an -SSID of -0 (typically omitted) through -15.  This 
isn't a radio restriction, but a protocol restriction.  If you were 
doing true objects, those IDs go in the payload of the AX.25 packet and 
are therefore not as restrictive.
