[aprssig] Best format for a Repeater Item (Better!)

there goes PHG.

A quick scan of 145.* objects shows less than 20% compliance with just the FREQ and TONE fields. Apparently I'm not the only one who's ignorant.

I'll make sure to get this kind of structure built in to the UDR.

Thanks again for the guidance,
