For the group...Some other ways to extend the range 
of the Voice Alert concept for Family or local group contact:

1) operate your group APRS mobiles on a quiet local
repeater that has PL.  Put up a digi from that input
over to 144.39.  Your 5 minute packets wont
bring up the repeater, but you will show up on APRS.
By having the A side without PL, then your group
will hear any voice call on that A side channel over
a great range.  They will have to bring up side B
'with PL' to talk back though.

2) set up a UHF input ==> 144.39 PL 100 cross band
link.  This way you can reach someone on voice alert
over a greater range.

We do that as well, but if I'm at work and she's picking 
up our daughter, we're out of simplex range due to 
terrain and distance, so we work through our designated 

If we get into simplex range (defined as being able to hear the direct 
packets) we go to our designated "call channel" which is a simplex 
frequency and one button push on the  microphone.
