In fact, pressing DTMF memory 1 button takes about as much
effort as a PTT kerchunk.  And if the repeater controller
implements APRStt, then instead of a kerchunk, what other people
will hear the repeater controller say is "Welcome WB4APR" which
is really not much different from me picking up the mic,
pressing PTT and announcing "WB4APR Mobile"...

The advantage is that now the rest of the world either hears it
or sees it on APRS since it is machine and network readable
instead of the words just falling on deaf ears.
