  4. Voice Interval Timer Option. Imbedded in the alert information packet is the time the warning or watch is in effect. The time is sent in fifteen minute increments for the first hour and thirty minute increments for the remaining time of the alert. Once the alert message is finished, the red alert led on the front panel will continue to flash and the WX-250 voice synthesizer will periodically key-up the repeater transmitter and announce the nature of the alert. This timer sets the time between voice synthesizer announcements.
