[aprssig] SmartBeaconing for Bicycle mobile

I did an event a few years ago with 5 ambulances and APRS trackers at 1min. intervals. That turned out to be a real mess. 1 min was way too often unless you are trying to target the object with missiles.

Might I suggest that you use a 5:1 ratio?
5 mins @ 2 mph with 1 min @ 10 mph?
Theoretically that would update at the same delta distance between the speeds, making the track more 'regular', so to speak.
(almost like making the reports based on distance change instead of elapsed time)

Thank you. I'll try 2mph @ 2 minutes and 10mph @ 1 minute tomorrow and
see how it works out. We're not in a very busy APRS environment here,
so the 1 and 2 minutes shouldn't be a burden. Especially not coming
from a 5w HT.
