The name of the software is APRX. In this case APRX version 2.01. I
think the latest version is 2.06.
It's open source, so I downloaded the latest version and found this in
2011-12-25 Matti Aarnio - OH2MQK - KP20NG <oh2mqk at sral.fi>
* VERSION, aprx.c, TODO, INSTALL, doc/aprx-manual.*:
Fix telemetry "tocall" to use software identifier,
and to put "TCPIP*" on APRSIS beacon path.
So I think the telemetry packet issue was fixed as of 2.03.
