[aprssig] Kenwood/Garmin adapter update

It's been pointed out that the D710 can do messaging through its other 
port.  It'd probably require a different board layout (or can you do GPS 
data on that port at the same time?) but it might be possible.  Anyone 
got a D710 I can borrow for a few months to find out?  =]

I think I *will* add a pseudo-NMEA interface for some of the messaging 
features, so if anyone wants to experiment with FMI they can do it 
without dealing with the details of the FMI protocol.
