[aprssig] Amount of "padding" before and after data at 1200 baud?

The preamble length also depends on how fast the receiver locks on and 
how fast the receiving modem gets clock sync.  I'd say 100 ms would be a 
minimum for normal APRS use, and I think my trackers default to 200 ms.

That is, you can send a series of beacons, and the timing will vary from one to the next.  I can look at the actual output, and would like to know what the minimum recommended times are so that I can insure that without just brute forcing long unneeded transmission times.
