UPMan and others,

I have an APX6000XE that has voice announcements for channel names and zone names. Would it be possible to take a .wav file of the voice and replace one of the "Alt Tone" sounds on the scanner with the voice .wav file? Then assign each channel I want to have the voice announcement the "Alt Tone" which has been replaced with a .wav of the voice from the APX.

For example. Channel "CITY-1". if i could replace "Alt Tone 1" with a .wav from the APX saying "CITY 1" then assign that channel in the scanner "alt tone 1"... when i go to CITY-1 in the scanner it would voice announce rather than playing the standard alt tone 1.

Thoughts?

Bad idea. The alert tone walks over the transmission, so if you have an announcement saying "blah blah fire department" every transmission, you'll miss the first 2-3 seconds of every keyup. If the transmission is shorter than the announcement, you'd lose the entire thing.
