[aprssig] GPS Signals in a Tunnel?

Probably dead reckoning based on speed and direction when you entered the 
tunnel. You could stop in the tunnel and see it the GPS had you still 
moving (probably not safe). You could drive slow through the tunnel and see 
if the GPS maintained the indicated speed that you entered the tunnel with.
