Searching APRS and AIS targets using wildcards

I've finally added wildcard character support for searching stations in the map and info views. A wildcard search in either will return a list of stations (together with their symbols, report ages and comment strings). Clicking on a station in the list will jump to the map or info view of the given station. To limit load on the server, a maximum of 300 stations will be shown.

Supported wildcard characters are ? (any single character) and * (any number of characters).
After successfully looking up a callsign in either the info or map views, links will be shown to other SSIDs of the same callsign (if there are any).
