[aprssig] "Best" packet decoder solution

I have two KPC-3+ TNCs that are in unattended locations but they are 
stand-alone, no KISS mode operation. From everything I've read regarding 
this issue I would opt for a hardware solution instead of trying to take 
the TNC in and out of KISS mode. It sounds like a timer circuit and a 
relay of FET that would just turn off the TNC for a few seconds once a 
day would keep things moving along with little fuss.
