New Portsdown 2018 Jessie Software Release 201805151 - The Contest Edition

This release is specifically intended to make particpation in the upcoming IARU International ATV Contest easier for Portsdown users. Remember that this year the BATC is awarding a £50 Amazon Voucher to the transmitting station using a Portsdown system received at the the furthest distance (on any band).

The release adds a locator bearing calculator (on Menu 2) and makes the composite video output mode easier to use. Further details can be found here: https://wiki.batc.org.uk/Portsdown_2018 ... 2_Software. The specific changes are:

Added new menu for Composite Video Output
More test cards and all video snaps available from video output
Sound pass-through for Comp Video out is routed to USB Audio
RTL-FM audio is routed to USB Audio if present (else RPi audio)
SnapView modified to access all video snaps
Added Locator range and bearing calculator
Menu modifications in preparation for future LimeSDR Mini support (not planned to be available in the Jessie build)
