The two calls in question would be

WA8LMF-6    (Conventional 300-baud HF AX.25)
WA8LMF-66   (On APRS Messenger APRSD-over-MFSK16)

I was beaconing alternately on both modes.   I think they would have already 
aged off APRS.fi, but I'm not certain how long findu.com keeps them.

I do think the problem was here.   PASSALL would most likely spew junk 
different every time.   I saw the data base accumulated by UIview here at home 
when I got back from the trip.    Dozens and dozens of clean packets all 
showing my home location, with time stamps showing they were received while I 
was on the road.    Not to mention that I don't think anyone else except myself 
was running igates on 60 meters during the tests.
