[aprssig] Autonomous EMCOMM Telemetry

I don't think I'd want to use any of the electronics from a 1995 
design.  You could do it smaller, cheaper, and with less power today.  
Bosch Sensortec's new pressure/humidity/temperature/gas sensors measure 
3 x 3 x 1 millimeters.  I'm thinking about using those in the next 
version of the ADS-WS1.
