The VGS-1: not your father’s voice prompt

Based upon personal experience, Kenwood voice synthesizers are well designed and easy to use. They offer a unique and useful combination of (1) frequency announcements on demand, (2) automatic frequency reports after changes in  VFO, band, and/or channel, (3) instant, audible assistance with menu navigation, and (4) announcements by the VGS-1 of the function keys and options.

Further details are here.

Also, other brands' have similar, modern, synthesizers. They are discussed here.

About AC9KJ

I earned my licenses because I'm not into Bingo or trips to casinos, and because it was on my bucket list. It also keeps me busy in the absence of my wife, who passed on, three years ago. I'm 78 years old and briefly held a Novice license (WN9MIU) in about 1970. I'm a former commercial radio Program Director and Music Teacher. Right now I'm operating HF on a a Kenwood TS-590SG, with an indoor loop antenna. The car radios are a Yaesu 8900R and/or a Yaesu FT-857D, supplemented by a Yaesu FT-60 HT. I'm slowly learning Morse code (my apartment is an SSB black hole), and will eventually get into PSK31 and modes of that ilk.
