The only successful time I have ever made a voice QSO triggered by APRS is when someone sent me an APRS text message asking to talk on a local voice repeater frequency.Maybe we need to spec a text message (in addition to object report) format for the radios to do TUNE button support; how long would it take the manufacturer to add it in a firmware update? It took me forever to manually tune to the other station's frequency and CTCSS because I was in heavy traffic; if it hadn't been stop-and-go (heavy on the stops), I wouldn't have been able to set it up.

Bob also didn't mention that the D710 and D74 have an APRS menu option to turn on voice alert which is easier than manually setting up CTCSS. But it is pretty worthless in practice. I have hundreds of thousands of APRS mobile miles with VA on, I do occasionally hear a station and I call if it is safe (often it is in a city while towing my fifth wheel and talking isn't safe), and have never once gotten an answer, nor have I gotten a call...Steve K4HG> On May 20, 2019, at 7:29 AM, Robert Bruninga <bruninga at usna.edu> wrote:> > I was astounded that of the 100 people in the APRS forum at Dayton only a handful knew what voice alert was about.>  > Im going to start calling it PROXIMITY alert, because that is its real value.  To hear that someone is in range and after that, then make the call.  So it will be “APRS Proximity/Voice Alert”.>  > Bob, WB4APR> From: Robert Bruninga <bruninga at usna.edu> > Sent: Sunday, May 19, 2019 7:50 AM> To: Kenwood_TH-D74 at yahoogroups.com; TAPR APRS Mailing List <aprssig at lists.tapr.org>> Cc: Robert Bruninga <bruninga at usna.edu>> Subject: Re: [Kenwood_TH-D74] monitering aprs>  > THe way to do APRS in any radio is to have Four memory channels and ALWAYS keep the volume UP.:>  > 1) (normal) 144.39 with CTCSS 100 for Voice Alert (and in-range detection)> 2) (check) 144.39 without CT so you can check the  channel by ear > 3) (Silent)  144.39 with CTCSS (private tone for only your friends to call, otherwise totally silent)> 4) (Event) 144.39 +600 for Events where there is a 144.99 input/144.39 output digi>  > Bob, WB4APR>  >  > On Sat, May 18, 2019 at 11:49 PM Cliff Sojourner cls at employees.org [Kenwood_TH-D74] <Kenwood_TH-D74 at yahoogroups.com> wrote:>>  >> Sorry, I should have written more specific:>> >> PL on voice on 144.390, not on the APRS signal.>> >> Cliff K6CLS CM87uw>> >> On May 18, 2019 7:29:00 PM PDT, "Don Rhodes lbdwag at gmail.com [Kenwood_TH-D74]" <Kenwood_TH-D74 at yahoogroups.com> wrote:>>>  >>> Putting a PL tone on it and that APRS still decodes is fascinating to me.
