[aprssig] emcomm and ham cheapness

Hi,
I wanted to add to the hospital theme here.  Our
packet digi is on a hospital roof and we use an Icom
70 watt mobile for our radio.  We have equipment to
connect to a local internet provider for a link to the
state EOC when we need to.  The radio has been in
service for several years.  We have had several
problems with the TNC (Kantronics KPC 3 type),
however.  Whenever we want to remotely connect to set
the time for Spring forward and Fall back, it loses
its mind and we have to manually go and reset it.

73,
Chris
