         Well -- I was actually talking about the HamHUD, HI!

         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.
