Careful folks, don't want to get hung up on the lose grammar, you'll  
loose your mind.

Steering more towards the topic at hand, does anyone know of good  
radios that can be modded in such a way that you could still do voice  
alert?  As an example, I thought of looking for a commercial radio  
(like an older Motorola or Midland) that I could retune to 390.  But,  
the second trick would be to tie the TNC in so that it acts like a  
D700, where the TNC hears the packets but only spits out a data burst  
through the speaker if the 100Hz PL tone is there.
