And Hmm. With a closer look I just realised that the telemetry is
pure AX.25 rather than APRS. Having said that TELEM appears to be
a legitimate APRS destination address.

However, that would make the first S of SYS the "APRS Data Type
Identifier", which strictly speaking is listed as "Do not use"

Any IGATE authors on here know if their IGATE code is that strict ?
or if it's likely to pass these packets anyhow ? I wonder if the
packet payload length (~142 characters) would prevent the IGATE
s/w passing the packets onto APRS-IS ?
