Problem is, if an APRS client is doing it, I don't think there
is a way to set objects to one path and routine ops to another.
SO the way to do this is to have the beacon station put the
beacon in his LTEXT and have a DIRECT path for that LTEXT and
its own 10 minute rate BLT.  Then his client APRS can do its
thing, but without messing with the local/direct beacon.

We always want these local objects local.  No spam out of area.
