[aprssig] HF project

This is just a regional project, and there are only a few channels 
available, and only a couple of those that are likely to work well for NVIS.

300 baud AFSK would be nice if it'll work, but running multiple PSK31 
signals should be feasible.  I know I can do it with the OpenTracker 
without any additional code (it'll let you select the audio carrier in 
31.25 hz steps) if the transmitters have sufficient frequency stability.

I've had some feedback from a couple of people on this, but if anyone 
else happens to have a 60-meter transmitter design and/or experience in 
mobile NVIS networks, let me know.
