Similar tactical callsigns are the weather stations installed by my county's ARES/RACES group in cooperation with the Chester County government's Department of Emergency Services, identified as CCDES-n (southeastern Pennsylvania). The operator running each station puts his callsign in the status message.
We've also used tactical callsigns for public service events for the various positions along a bike race or marathon or parade, but those don't get digipeated to the world at large.

example of a tactical callsign...

The licensed callsign is W7TA. The tactical callsign is TOULON.
At the very least it is near a Toulon Lake. I don't know it it's on
a mountain of the same name. Look around and you will see several
other digis with tactical callsigns.
Of course, it should NOT be using a path of WIDE1-1. Unfortunately
at least a couple of the other nearby digis are also using WIDE1-1.
