[aprssig] KPC3+ from GPS to TERMINAL

I have not used a KPC3+ as a tracker for several years but from what I
remember, you did not need to switch the KPC3+ Version 8.3 into GPS mode to
use it as a tracker.  You did have to go to GPS mode in the plain KPC-3 and
earlier models of the KPC-3+.

In those older models I seem to remember having this same problem and I
think the easiest way to get out of it was to connect to the TNC remotely
and then change the mode remotely.

Hope that helps,
