Voice Mail Commands 

Command: Check for public voice mail
Codes to execute: 176
User Level Required: 0 - All Users
Description: Instructs the repeater to announce if there are any public voice mail messages available to be read. If there are, the repeater will announce who those messages are for. If there is more than one message, the sequence the repeater announces who they are for will determine the number you will need to use to play a particular message using command code 177. After listening to your message, you can delete that message using command code 178.

For example...

  • You enter command code 176
  • The repeater responds with "There is mail for, W5XAH, W5XEO"
  • Since it announced W5XEO second, you use command code "177 2" to listen to the message.
  • You then enter command code "178" to erase the message you just heard.
Since the public voice mail commands do not require a user level above 0, they can be used by any repeater user without any need to be "registered" or to log into the repeater.
