[aprssig] KPC-3+ digi setup oddity

Your TNC is function exactly as designed.

BEACON - send the contents of BTEXT using the TOCALL of Beacon.

BTEXT - defines what the contents of said beacon will be.

Instead of using BTEXT for your posit string, I suggest taking a look at 
the LT 1-4 strings and the BLT 1-4 for the timing. If I'm remembering 
correctly, there is an option to set the path for each LT buffer as well 
- you can send posits every 10 minutes with 1 hop, every 30 with 3 hops,
