[aprssig] APRS Link

Actually I've been using APRSLink with D-STAR and UI-View32.  I
usually write out my email with notepad in the format required by
APRSLink, then paste the message lines into the UI-View 'Text' field.
Sending the message takes minimal airtime since I'm not using a
digipeater with my configuration and since the gateway computer is in
a tall building in the middle of town, I can send and receive APRSLink
messages from anywhere in the county.  It is much better than using
the one-liner email and I can receive an email if I need to.

It would be nice if someone could come up with an APRSLink plug-in
interface for UI-View32 that would parse a paragraph into the
individual send lines and be able to reassemble a received email to
make it easier to read.
