After using the Dreamcatcher, and I’m especially interested in APRS, I would suggest an app or feature in some future OS rev to include a “string” monitor for the various feeds, which if detected would set an alarm, either a light (LED) or sound or contact closure. This would let the user monitor for their call sign in APRS, specific words in news, names, etc.
This way the user doesn’t have to look through all the received files to see if messages or news items apply. This could potentially satisfy the interest for “audible emergency alerts” by monitoring for a specific “strings”. It would also be handy if the “string” allowed for BOOLEAN combinations (i.e., “warning” OR “alarm” OR “emergency” OR (“outnet” AND “kr1zan”)).
Conceivably, the monitoring function might allow for “strings” to invoke specific 'alarms" (i.e., light, sound, switch, etc.).
