That is just what APRStt is supposed to do. Speak informaiton
about APRS on the APRStt DTMF/Voice channel.  There was even a
QUERY command so you could identify which calls you wanted
announced...

Ken, these are great idea, and is why I have wanted APRStt so
much all these years.  Since I wrote the original APRStt back in
2000 (under DOS), there have been three starts at doing a
windows version, but none have been completed..  We hope that
Doug KA2UPW's that was demonstrated at Dayton this year might be
seen soon...
