But if you live in an area served by an APRSdata engine, then whenever a
satellite is in view, the radio will speak the name of the satellite and
whether it is "high", or "low" in elevation.  When you hear this, a quick
glance at the front panel of the radio will show  you the up and downlink
frequencies and the distance and bearing to the satellite.

To activate this, set your POSIION COMMENT to CUSTOM1.
