[aprssig] Local Repeater Displays on Mobiles

The FINDU lookup (link below) shows all APRS objects or stations
using the QSO repeater symbol and less than 10% of them show
their frequency as their object name so that they show up well
on the mobile radios.

The rest of them simply show a callsign.  This makes them
indistinguishible from just another APRS packet station when
seen on the mobile radio's front panel station list.  This is
not very useful information when the frequency would be so much
more useful.
