If she's in direct range, you can call her on voice
alert and she wont have to do anything.  She can
keep the volume down on the voice side, but still
get your call on the APRS voice-alert side.  Bob

I know the Kenwood TMD-700's will respond to a position  query.  I do it 
all the time to ping my wife's radio and get a recent position.  Usually 
when I'm leaving work, my radio's been turned off and I want to see if 
she's left work, picked up the kid yet, etc.

To send it from the D-700, you send it as message to the station with 
text of ?aprsp?.  The other radio will acknowledge it like any other 
message as well as sending out a position packet.

Comes in handy as a "paging" feature.  My wife usually keeps the volume 
on the voice side turned down.  When she hears the beeps of a received 
message, she turns up the volume and ID's so that I can call her on 
voice if I want to. (she doesn't like working the radio for messages 
when driving).

I'm assuming other query's would work as well, but haven't tried them.
