RAFT and ANDE speech callsigns



Now that ANDE and RAFT are both speaking, here are the
packet-to-voice synthesizer rules:

1) it turns the packet header into "XXXXXX says"
2) it then speaks normal english and normal spellings..
3) It tries to spell CAPS, but we found that to force it to
speak a callsign correctly independent of starting character if
you make the second character a "!" then it will always speak
properly.  Such as W!B4APR will be spoken as wb4apr as expected.

Here are DK3WN and PE1ITR in packet-to-voice QSO:

----original message-----------------------------------------

RAFT is weaker, but speaks...
* if ANYONE has CONNECTED RAFT
* 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.

For more info, see the ANDE-RAFT-OPS web page.
