[aprssig] GPS Speaker Microphone

I talked to Pryme.  The mic is $585 retail, plus around $7k for the base
unit.  On-air format is proprietary, and they have no interest in opening up
any aspect of it.  Plus, it's got a built-in rechargeable battery that would
probably make it unsuitable for a lot of users - in search and rescue, for
example, a mic that only lasts 8 hours and needs to be plugged in to a
charger isn't going to work.
