[aprssig] What's causing this?

    Hi Rick and SIG.  Thanks for bringing this to my attention.  My PASSALL 
is off, but I have traced the problem back to a USB to Serial adapter I'm 
using.  I bought a new computer about a month ago with no onboard serial 
ports and used a USB-Serial adapter I had lying around.  I'm going to try 
reinstalling the drivers and changing the baud rate between the PC and D700. 
I'll be keeping an eye on it, but if anyone notices mangled packets coming 
over TCP/IP from my station after tonight let me know!
