I haven't seen the Byonics offering.
I did this about 10 years back with the ADS-SR1 Simplex Repeater from Argent Data Systems.

But you still need a 3rd radio for 52! And this year I will be running
AutoCQ on 52. Byonics has made me an auto-CQ'er for the trip toDayton.
It can be set to call a brief CQ once every 3 minutes (or 2 minutes, or 1
minute). This gives 52 the same advantage as Voice Alert does for APRS.
On the 1 minute setting it only says my call. On the 3 minute one it says
CQ 52 and the call.
The #1 problem with this device if everyone used it is the same as with
Voice Alert. LEAVING IT ON AND TURNING DOWN THE SPEAKER VOLUME. There is
nothing more frustrating on Voice Alert than someone pinging away with the
volume turned down. Byonics has set a timer that will time out after 30
minutes if there have been no transmissions.
