[aprssig] "no sym yet" icon + compressed packets?

Forgot to add -- my station, and the others that get 'no sym yet', seem
to all be passing compressed-format packets.  So maybe that's a factor
also.  It's unclear to me how to turn off compression on my D710, as an
experiment, so see if that's his issue.
