[aprssig] Auto-TUNE in the D710 for objects

You right that the D710 ignores the object name if there is a MHz in the 
status. If you drop the MHz in the status and I understand correctly 
that you still use a -0.6 offset then it should tune just by dropping 
the 145.150Mhz or just the MHz if the 145.150 needs to be there.

This is how I do it:

;146.980 -*111111z2820. N/09810. WrT107 R30m George West K5YFL

I do not get a Frequency over on the right of the display and the radio
  will STILL TUNE because it pulls the frequency from the beacon label 
and uses my AUTOREPEATER offset to tune.

I am alittle confused as to why the 145.150 is there. Unless its for 
information of the input of the repeater for those that don't know the 
offset or split. Differences in the continents I guess?!?

If you drop the MHz in the status text then that should fix the issue I 
would think.
