[aprssig] Auto-Answer meets Auto-Responder (AVRS)

Another way to transmit message without identifier {xxxxx in Kenwood radios,
are bulletins and announcements. In such case, addressee BLN makes it
different from auto-reply messages.

Unfortunately, VX-8 sends BLN with {xxxxx identifier. I cannot find
auto-reply option in VX-8. Acks are working OK.
My tests: TH-D72 AB9FX-7; VX-8 AB9FX-8

Is there any other way to transmit a non-sequenced APRS message from a 
Kenwood radio?  If so, then that's still not a 100% reliable way to know 
it's safe to ignore as an Auto-Answer.

PS.  AA: is still 1 character shorter and less intrusive than [AA] which 
almost begs for a space between it and the text adding yet another 
overhead character.  Sorry, I'm still not convinced to change to answer 
a non-published "spec".
