Ah... I get it now. Mind you, I'd be very surprised if newbies would have 
been in the loop enough to know about Voice Alert. It would certainly be an 
interesting conversation listening in on the half a dozen of them all 
talking to each other at the same time!

I had the house to myself for a good chunk of today. Needless to say, I had 
the volume turned up on a 144.390 radio listening while I was working away 
on other things. Yes, you can learn a lot just listening.
