[aprssig] Doubling APRS messaging in ham radio overnight

I can't see that the 144.39 channel can take double the messaging traffic.
But that's a different topic.

The aprs4r message gating code works quite well, actually - but there are
setup issues with any igate, and it seems to be hard to get right,
and the APRS-IS filtering mechanism doesn't always seem to work
as specified, either.

There are, sadly, a bunch of broken implementations out there that no
one is interested in fixing. I'm working on a cookbook for starting
with a WRT54GL and OT1+ and ending up with a solid digi/igate that connects
directly to a radio; for about $100 and a little time, anyone will
be able to do it.
