RAFT and ANDE speak



ANDE now speaks!

The same laryngitis bug affecting RAFT was also found in ANDE.
So tonight we fixed that too, and now both ANDE and RAFT will
speak any APRS packet message addressed to TALK.  Here is a
summary:

RAFT is weak signal and hard to hit, but speaks
* if ANYONE has CONNECTED RAFT
* Pse do not CONNECT if you cannot hear RAFT 10s beacons!
* Then any APRS MSG to TALK will be spoken

ANDE is stronger, but is lazy and sleeps unless woken up.
* ANDE must be awakened by 145.825 activity
* ANDE voice must be activated by command station each pass
* Then any APRS MSG to TALK will be spoken

ANDE has better link performance for users, but needs command
stations, but you get more workable passses due to its better
links.

We would like to hear a recording of the first two-way
packet-voice-packet-voice QSO...
