[aprssig] Sample Digi-Ned ini file for the new no relay/widesystem

 From what I have been reading in the sig the last few days, I think it 
can do most of the stuff that I have digi_ned doing.  As I remember 
there were at least a couple of area not covered.  I am looking into 
UI-Digi at this time to see about getting a working configuration that 
is as close as possible to what I have digi_ned doing.  Of course, if 
your digi site has the room for a computer (old and slow laptops are 
especially good) and it not connecting to the internet, a single floppy 
is all you need for the computer.  The next step up would probably be a 
desktop type running Linux.  This can also be a fairly old/slow machine 
as you would not need/want the gui interface.  In fact, I plan on trying 
an old slow (PII-233) machine in the next few days to see just how low I 
can go with the current Linux distros and still have a working digi 
using digi_ned. The speed limitation is for the linux side of the house, 
not digi_ned as digi_ned using a dos disk will work fine on a 486!
