[aprssig] repeater objects and digipeater advertisements.

Our local repeater uses 156.7 CTCSS.  The distant repeater, I dunno.  When I
first programmed the local repeater object into the local digipeater so that
it could be autotuned, I used the T designator which meant when you pressed
TUNE on the d710, it would QSY and setup the PL tone 156.7.  Since the tone
was only used for transmit, I could get into the local repeater, but I could
also hear the other one when I had used autotune.

What I figured out is that the repeater object could program not only PL
tone but CTCSS squelch too.  Now when I hit TUNE, I have CTCSS squelch on
the local repeater and don't hear the distant one.
