RAFT in Packet-Voice mode



Henk, PA3GUO, reports that he has just -enabled- RAFT VOICE
mode.

Enabled, this means that any station may TURN ON voice mode over
his country with a single CONNECT RAFT packet.  The voice
synthesizer will remain on for 90 seconds.  Only the CONNECT
packet is required of that station.  After his connect packet
brings up RAFT, then he can fore a disconnect so he can try an
APRS MESSAGE to TALK.

Once the VOICE synthesizer is on, then anyone can send a UI APRS
formatted MESSAGE to the callsign of "TALK" and RAFT will speak
it (if it decodes it)...

RAFT is very weak and hard to hear except on HIGH overhead
passes, even with beams.  Please do NOT attempt to turn on RAFT
or to send TALK messages if you cannot hear it.  You may be
QRMing other stations.

Thanks
Bob Bruninga, WB4APR
