I did some tests with my TH-D7E (V2+). What I see is:

1) Positions out of range - regardless if of the packet type (positions, MIC-E, objects) are all shown with P> and not listed. An object with a satellite icon is NO exception.
2) Packets from station who's position is not known (status, Ultimeter strings, objects) are shown - the TH-D7 just doesn't know if it should be displayed so it does to make sure.

So it looks like the special handling of satellites does not apply to the TH-D7E. My guess is that the TH-D7A also does not have this.

Kind regards,
