more APRS ponderings

On my HT, I usually run ARPS on one “side”, and the BAARC repeater on the other VFO.  So, along with talking there is a lot of that screaching.  Atleast that is what the wife calls it.

 

Bob WB4APR proposes a solution.  Turn on PL encode and decode for PL100 on 144.390 when using APRS.  Then you’ll only hear stations SO CLOSE to you (simplex range) that you might want to give them a voice call.  I’ll have to try this on the way to Dayton.  Bob calls it “Voice Alert”.

I think I like the idea.  I see all the APRS stations scroll past my screen, and I get the “beep” when every I’m digipeated… which is important.
