[aprssig] D700 owners Packet Capability Urgent

I would definitely recommend running an external TNC and radio for
connected packet.  The KPC-3+ will do well but only at 1200 baud.  The
KPC-9612+ will do both 1200 baud and 9600 baud.

The D700's built-in modem doesn't have enough onboard memory to operate
for significant data transfers.
