Hi Warren,

Just my Friday Funny I suppose.  Glad you enjoyed it.

On another note, how do these alerts get to a mobile user. If you had a 
laptop in the car all could be resolved on the screen, however are there 
newer radios that will convert the message to text and sound an alarm it 
the alert is for the area in which they are operating?

Hi Shaun,
