I investigated this one just now. aprsc's APRS object decoder has a silly
little bug, it doesn't handle objects having HHMMSSh timestamp - only
DDHHMMz. The ISS object has a HHMMSSh timestamp and aprsc doesn't take
that as a valid object, so the object filter won't pass it on.
The bug is simple, and the fix is simple too, I'll release a new version
