[aprssig] Gating Objects from Internet to RF

Pete makes an excellent point though that ECHOSVR would match what is in
place today with CQSRVR and WXSVR.  My .02 would be to stay with that
format.  

Then a simple webpage that Google finds with ECHOSVR on it and the contact
about any issues would handle the rest.

It would seem odd to me to see my KB8ZGL-R EL object come from someone
else's callsign.  That would bother me more than seeing it come from my own
callsign even though I didn't put it out there.  Thus the ECHOSVR is a great
solution from Pete's recommendation.

Anyways... GREAT project guys, I have my IRLP nodes all on APRS, but now I
can add the EchoLink only ones also!

Thanks!
