[aprssig] "no sym yet" icon + compressed packets?

I worked the ISS again this evening, and when K0GDI worked me it sure
appears that "1c" is missing in his packets for some reason (evidently
from the hex view).  I guess that breaks the code for icons, if not
more.  I guess we just won't get icons when that software/version reports.
