[OZAPRS] Freakishly long message path

With my APRS Station VK2CJB-1 being a Linux system, I've had it happily
record all packet traffic that it hears to a infinitely-growing log

..and I noticed today that it was over 80 megabytes and 500,000 packets
since I last flushed it ..so I wrote a hack Python script to find which
packet had traveled the furthest to get to me.

The Winner, traveling 1087.4 kilometres:
VK2KGV-3>APRS,VK2RNW-1,VK2AMW-1,VK2RAB-1*:!2915.28S/15049.27E# APRS Digi @ Coolatai

I didn't expect it to be a VK2 station! ..as there were several VK4,
VK1, and VK3 showing up during Tropo season.

The path details are shown in this image: https://imgur.com/a/y5381IS
