We already have repeater objects that beacon their position with the
help of beacon text from a nearby digi... how about smarter voice
repeaters that beacon on the APRS channel when the repeater is active?
It would need some smarts so it beaconed at a reasonable rate rather
than every time it was keyed up, but it could alert mobile operators to
where the activity was. Just a thought...
