[aprssig] Doubling APRS messaging in ham radio overnight

If someone where to google "DTMF pic" there seems to be a lot of code 
and circuits already developed that would decode the DTMF tones using 
pic.  There maybe some for the 6800 too but I didn't google that.  Using 
one of these circuits one would only need to add the paging text 
converter.  It should be a fairly simple task for someone that wants to 
learn about pics and finance a portion of their hobby, or write an 
article for QST.   I am interested, but too busy at this time and have 
not worked with pic at all yet but do write software.
