Any string of up to 6 letters and numbers will work, as long as they begin with 
AP .    The strings for specific software  and/or hardware are assigned by  Bob 
Bruninga WB4APR (the founder of APRS).   It is up to the programmer or 
manufacturer to contact Bob for a new destination call.  Some do not do this.

Without an "official" destination call issued by Bob, I would suggest something 
like  AP878    or  APA878    for now.
