A friend of mine is having trouble reading his frequency display on
his FT1000D.  His sight is poor but his mind is quick, and I would
like to help him remain operating.  He would prefer to stay with the
FT1000D as he is familiar with the controls and where they are

Dose anyone know of a way to add a voice, so that the frequency could
be read out to him.  It does not need to be a in radio fix, an
external add on would also be suitable.

If anyone knows of a solution I would sure appreciate it.

My friend is Paul Born, VE1AS from Milforn Nova Scotia Canada.  He has
been a ham for nearly fifty five years, and has forgotten more than I
will ever know.  It was his help a few years ago that got me
operating, and I feel this might be a small way to help him.  My call
in Canada was VE1BRN before moving down to Columbia TN, where my call
is KF4GKO.  Paul operates HF while I prefer VHF/UHF SSB.

Thanks in advance
