Yes, and I think I have had exactly TWO contacts via Voice
Alert. One was with Bob Bruninga, in the middle of nowhere when I
heard his packets and he heard me calling him. The other was with (I
think) Lee Dahlen. Both of these were maybe 4 years ago -- wonder
where Lee is now? I haven't heard from him in a long time.
I'm currently only running APRS in the truck, with no voice
capability, so am not transmitting 100 Hz PL. Last time I was
running Voice Alert, though, when I went through a large city I
started hearing several digipeaters break through the PL. Not sure
if the digis were transmitting 100 Hz or if the AX.25 was just
"fooling" my decoder.
