[aprssig] Additional SSID's

When a -63 packet is gated from the APRS-IS to AX.25 it's sent as a 
third party packet. The -63 callsign is enclosed as part of the packet 
so is unaffected by the AX.25 SSID limitation.

It's the same with messages and replies sent to the -63 station over 
AX.25. The -63 is in the text of the packet not the AX.25 SSID.

I'm working at making APRS Messenger capable of "SMART" (Bob, WB4APR's 
description) two way HF igating so the capability to communicate with 
-63 stations via the APRS-IS and AX.25 Igates should be available in the 
next month or so.
