[aprssig] Voice Repeater Frequency Objects

If XASTIR is placing the altitude field in the front of position
text, I think that is a mistake.  There are a few fixed fields
that can go -only- there, so the altitude should be palced on
the end.  This preserves all parsing of the other fields, and
also preserves the formatting we use for may objects.

I hope XASTIR will correct this in future releases if this is
indeed how it works.?
