Equipment Failure Notification: The emergency input of the VAE-10 can be connected to equipment such as tower lights or a backup generator, so that when the tower light goes out it can send a voice message stating that the "Mount Lemmon tower 3 light is off". This warning can be sent periodically multiple times or continuously until reset. For backup power, when the backup is activated a message such as "Backup power is on".
Emergeny Alert: Public safety dispatchers do not want field radio users to talk on the channel without need when an emergency is occurring. The dispatcher can have the VAE-10 send a voice message such as "Emergency alert keep channel clear". This message can be sent periodically until reset.
