[aprssig] TM-D710 Tune and Voice Object

Two digit number has a limit of 99. So 99 meters is about 300 feet. I don't 
think any repeater range would fit in such number. So I think kilometers are 
much more appropriate, 99 km is about 160 miles. In such case m would be 
still for miles, and k for kilometers.
