Yes for the way to ANNOUNCE voice repeater freqs and tones using an APRS
object at a repater, you simply load the BTEXT and LTEXTs with the format
for  the Repeater Frequency Object.

The page http://aprs.org/localinfo.html tells you how.

For an old KPC3?  If it does not have any LTEXTS, then I think you can only
do the singl BTEXT?  And that then has to have the digis own APRS info in
it.

Im not sure when Kantronics introduced the separate (4) LTEXTS.

I am not much of an APRS admin but I am in a position to be able to change
the config on our local APRS digipeater (a KPC3notplus colocated with our
repeaters).  From looking at APRS.fi's idea of our raw packets, I'm pretty
sure we aren't sending out the info on our repeaters.

1) Can that be done on a KPC3notplus?  (i.e., no memory/config limitation in
that old hardware that would preclude it).

2) Is there a website that would concoct the right string based on me
feeding it the parameters?  Barring that, is there a *canonical* place where
I can look it up and figure out the string myself?
