[aprssig] sticky tracker

Hey, I should make those - it'd give me a legitimate excuse to play with 
spud guns!  (No more CO2 power, though... too much potential for 
catastrophic failures.)

I wonder what percentage of the time the cops will actually manage to 
get in a position to use this thing, have it hit and attach properly, 
continue working, and NOT get scraped off by the suspect.

And in the case of a stolen car, I suppose you might be more likely to 
recover the car, but you're giving the bad guys a long head start to 
bail out and run with no one looking.
