[aprssig] Beacon Doesn't

I've used it before, never had any trouble with it that I can recall.  Other
than maybe having the audio level set too high on the KPC-3, which caused
problems with some receiving TNCs.

Try a really short packet.  And keep in mind that the default destination is
IDENT, which might not show up on an APRS program.
