[aprssig] balloon tracker

The OpenTracker reports temperature just fine in APRS mode.  Assuming you
don't mind Celsius readings - it only does Fahrenheit in APRS weather mode.
It'll also report battery voltage, GPS HDOP and number of satellites in the
comment string.

I'll pick on Jason for an example:

KE4NYV-12:/231826z3716.95N/07957.88Wk022/020/A=001082 13.0V 45C Jason's

And here's one with everything enabled:

K0RX:/021541z4141.12N/09133.06Wb090/059/A=000690 09.0V 25C HDOP01.0 SATS07

If you need something lighter weight, let me know - I've still got a few SMT
beta test units on hand.
