> Dayton Travel day approaches in 2 wks! (Th, Fr, Sat, Sun)

Pre-load your D700/710 with a few OBJECT names...  If you see a
situation of interest to your fellow travelers, you can send out
the OBJECT at your present location..  You would never use this
of course, to avoid a SMOKIE speed trap, but only to help fellow
motorists find a partially hidden policeman (or other object) in
time of need...

You can save up to 4 such objects in your other 4 PM's
temporarily.  The only requirements in those PM's are these:
  MYCALL = SLOW [or WRECK, TRAFFC, STUCK, LUNCH, DINNER, SMOKIE,
DONUTS, POLICE, etc]
  STATUS = "de CCCCCC"  <= your call
  GPS ON  clearly you cannot use a fixed posit here...

And optionally if available:
  PATH   = WIDE1-1 (though any path will do...)
  PKT TX = MANUAL, but any existing one will do

Notice that only the first three are required, and one status
can be re-used by any PM.  So for the Dayton travel weekend, you
can actually re-use any of your existing PM's by making only
those 2 changes, and then remembering to change them back after
the trip.

When you want to transmit an OBJECT, just switch to that PM,
press the BCON button a few times in the next 30 seconds until
you think you got out.  Do not keep sending it further down the
road, because you don't want it to follow you!  THEN switch back
to your regular traveling PM.  Enjoy, Bob, WB4APR
