Actually, my warning just puts a big red warning box in the
middle of his map and BEEPS once.  He does not have to
acknowledge it.  But he has to re-draw his map if
he wants to see what's under it...  So its does not prohibit
his transmission if he is away from his operating position, but
he can hear the beep in the same room and has to clear
it to see his map.

That way if he is having an emergency , his packets still
get out while he is off lending first aid or something...
