[aprssig] Fwd: RE: WinLink and the APRS-IS

How about this Compromise:

* Move the -WL to the end:  CCCCCC-WL
* FINDU accepts -WL
* Make it an OBJECT so it can be selected that way

Actual packet injected into the APRS-IS:

CALLSIGN>APWL2K:;CCCCCC-WL*DDHHMMzDDMM.HHNWDDDMM.HHWa
PHGxxxx FFF.FFF-SS_1200b winlink.org

This will appear on the Kenwood D700 mobile display as:

CCCCCC-WL      <== very visible that it is a WL station
FFF.FF-SS          <== Frequency and SSID
_1200b win        <== 1200 baud
link.org               <== for more see winlink.org

Yes, the -SS is a stretch, but since it will be consistent
and global, it will only take about 2 seconds for everyone
to udnerstand it..
