[aprssig] New n-N and 28 versus 30

I'm not sure how the timer works in digis. Is this timer just for 
callsign-SSID or is this for callsign-SSID and given frame? If for all the 
frame, then time could much longer. Probable short time would be needed only 
for messages retries. Beacon with the same position is not needed to be 
repeated even for few minutes.

I have another question about KPC-3+ v9.0
I tried to set digi and timer doesn't work as it did in v8.3 Any additional 
settings? There are new commands like UIDUPE, but timer doesn't work neither
