[aprssig] Mic muting

Does this problem exist with the EJ-41U?  I can't say I've had any 
negative experiences using the EJ41U for my Igate.  I have the 
original DR-135TP.

The only thing that really grinds my gears is that KISS mode is 
broken.  Last time I tried it, it broke the TNC until I reset it.

I'm pretty sure my 135 turns off audio when I go into data/TNC mode, 
but not 100%.  Maybe I should go look.  :)
