Interesting.. Today I got a response from one that said he never knew that APRS could do this.  And thanked me for asking.  He suggested that if I could find someone with one of his controllers that was willing to test it, that he would consider implementing it...

But since he did not authorize me to reveal who he was, maybe the best way for me to set this test up would be for anyone on this APRSSIG that is also a SYSOP for a repeater controller and willing, can send me the kind of controller they have privately and then I can match the responses to the MFR that is offering...

But then coincidently today, I had also significantly re-written the APRStt web page to include the concept of simply adding a DTMF chip to a modified a Micro-Trak or Opentracker+ and that way have a consistent approach in a tiny package that could work at any repeater, or on ANY voice channel including simplex.

see http://www.ew.usna.edu/~bruninga/aprstt.html

But still it doesnt hurt to have APRStt implemented in a repeater too if they are willing to code it.
