[aprssig] DTMF on HF?

Now from a real keyboard..
The conventional method for DTMF is 100mS per digit, 50 of tone and 50 of
1-2-3-4-4-3-2-1 with the dashes being silence (not very critical about
noise during that interval)
The fast way is to reduce or eliminate the space between different digits:
126.96.36.199-188.8.131.52 with the dash being 50ms and the dots being 0-10mS
How far you can shrink that timing depends on the decoder involved, I have
seen 0 work perfectly.
In my experience, the biggest hindrance to proper DTMF decoding is bad
This link has some good information on rates and twist.
