[aprssig] GPS from Sprint data card

And Verizon has a very limited definition of 'unlimited'.  We ran a
telemetry site on one of those cards and got a nastygram saying that our
service was being shut off because we were obviously engaged in illegal file
sharing - despite the fact that all of the traffic on the link was encrypted
and it connected only to our own VPN.  We weren't able to avoid having the
service shut off, and had to make two trips to the site (4 or 5 hours away)
to retrieve the card, reactivate it, and return it.
