[aprssig] New n-N settings for ui-digi

I make bad assumptions all the time and I am probably making one here, but I 
have to test it first.

Since UIFloodCall is "AL" and those packets are contained in the state I saw 
no reason to turn on the ID to add any confusion at this point. I have not 
fully tested the impact to our network by using the ID method for UIFlood 
with the addition of WIDE1-1 in place of RELAY. Until I have time to test 
it, I am inclined to leave it as it is at the moment because there is no 
problem. This is specific to our network and the majority of digpeaters here 
are UIDIGI which handle the paths correctly without bastardizing the path. I 
can watch it count down from Ft Payne to Scottsboro to Huntsville starting 
at AL3-3 to AL3-2 to AL3-1 just a it was originally intended. No ID 
substitution will ever be present since the path is a pure "AL3-3" and there 
is nothing to substitute in that path.

Has anybody tested the path "WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2" on a pure UIDIGI network to 
see what it does? If I have time this afternoon I will set 3 digi's outward 
to the ID method on a UIDIGI network to see the results. Basically, I need 
to know what happens to the WIDE1-1 on a UIDIGI network when the ID method 
is utilized. Then, I would consider the change. It is not broke here so I 
have not tried to fix this particular issue. Some of our changes are 
remotely set and some have updated UIDIGI EPROMS at this time with the 
changes shown on the website.
