[aprssig] Voice repeater objects

Now that the format for Voice Repeater FREQUENCY objects has
been nailed down, we can see on FINDU that 75 of the 440 or so
objects are in the new FREQUENCY format.  I have added a link to
the bottom of the New-Initiative web page so you can see the
summary.  Of course, these objects are LOCAL and so may not be
making it to an IGate: 

If your local digi is not putting out this local info for
visitors, please see the above web page and contact your local
DIGI sysop.  It would  be nice to have most of these in place by
the time of the great Dayton Pilgrimage in 3 weeks.  

This final format takes the input from many of you so that this
final format looks good on the D7, D700, HamHud, Uiview, etc.
TO make it unique for FINDU, requires that you chose 1 or two
unique bytes on the end of your frequency to make it globally
unique.  Letters from A-z and numbers can be used yielding 3600
differrnt combos for 10 KHz repeaters and 62 combos for 5 KHz
repeaters.  I have chosen 147.105-D for our Local Davidsonville

Use FINDU to see if yours is unique or is ping-ponging with some
other area.  Here is ours:  http://map.findu.com/147.105-D Bob,

> 1st line: is the FFF.FFF FREQUENCY (in place of callsign)
> 2nd line:  (actually beginning of Object text)
> T123 R45mi - Combines PL and Range on one line. 
> D234 R45mi - Combines DCS code and Range on one line. 
> N45, S15mi - No tone with different ranges N/S or E/W 
> 3rd Line:   (begins w space if previous line uses 10 
> Net 9pm W  - if it has regular nets worthy of note
> Mtg 1st M  - if it has regular meetings 
> 144.875in  - optional for a non stndard input
> 4th Line: (The first 8 bytes will show on the D700, more will

> FFF.FFF-x - where x is one of 62 characters (A-z or 0-9)
> FFF.FF+xy - where xy is one of over 3600 combinations
> The +/- indicate offset.
