[aprssig] Newbie APRS object question

Ideally, you'd just program the local digi to transmit this object direct,
no outbound path.  But since you are doing this from your home, instead of
W1-1, use the callsign of the digi you want to repeat your packet.  Then
only that digi will squawk the object and you'll keep it local.
