[aprssig] Kam back-up battery

Glenn,
If I was going to solder a different battery holder, I would 
look into using something other than button type. Is there room 
for a AA size? You can purchase a battery holder with leads and
that should work fine. I have a KPC3+ and it has a cutout in the 
PCB for an internal 9V battery which gives some room for such a
venture.
