What is the APRS message Code for “SPEAK THIS”.  I remember back in 1998 or
so, I used that to cause the Kenwood Radios (with voice chip) to speak APRS
messages.  But I went looking for something that documented this feature
and could not find it!

I thought it was simply a backslash (\) that caused all after (or was it
all between) to be spoken?

Our next APRS satellite can speak, and so we want it to be able to speak
APRS messages.

Greetings, all.

The next beta build of YAAC has been released, automatically upgradeable
the usual way or downloadable from the usual sources:


The changes to YAAC itself are fairly minor (a few bugfixes), but the
important change is support for the first draft of the new soundsplugin,
which allows YAAC to use your sound card to audibly report various events
occurring in the APRS network, such as:

   - new stations and objects being heard
   - stations reporting emergency and priority conditions
   - locally-controlled objects being taken over by other stations

Events can be reported as simple beeps, user-chosen sound files (WAV,
etc.), or synthesized spoken speech (using the "espeak" speech synthesizer
or other compatible applications).

The soundsplugin is available for download from the same places as YAAC
itself can be downloaded.
