[aprssig] Satellite notification based on Mic-E status

How did said service know WHICH satellite you wanted notification for?  
While I think it would be a neat idea, and I've considered adding 
satellite-named groups to my ANSRVR, there are so many satellites being 
tracked now that we could fill the channel with notifications.  
Especially if multiple people in a given area were running such a 
station on RF 24x7...

See http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/doc:satsrv for documentation on the 
satellite pass auto-responder called SATSRV.

Tells me my next pass will acquire signal in just under 35 minutes and 
will traverse from North to NorthEast to East with a peak elevation of 
only 8 degrees above the horizon.  And the entire pass will be done in 8 
minutes, acquisition to loss of signal.  It only works if you've 
recently beaconed a position.
