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.
