Actually, what started Voice Alert was the frustrtion
of driving down the road, out in the middle of nowhere
and seeing a passing APRS tracker and having no means
whatsoever to contact him.
Same goes for looking at a mobile on a map in
the middle of the EOC, right where you might
need a mobile and having no way to know how
to contact him.
I have nothing against trackers. They are very
valuable in controlled events where you have a
COMM plan and know how to contact them or
what their frequency is. But the other 99.9%
of the time, they may as well be moving fence
posts. <grin>. As far as 2-way comms is concerned
