This is why we need smarter radios.  Not only should you be able to get 
repeaters and such programmed into memory automatically, but your radio 
ought to know the calling frequency for any nearby stations.  Just select a 
station, hit a button, and you're QSY'd to their call frequency.

Voice Alert is a clever trick... I just don't have any expectation of ever 
encountering anyone out here who's running it.
