[App_rpt-users] ARnewsline over repeater

I wrote a script to do this with proper timing etc. Currently it is setup for ARRLnews, which I prefer, but can easily be changed for ARN. Examples in the script as well as comments on use. This is a link on hamvoip.org how-to's Direct link -


Note this will NOT work on Acid. Too many old SW versions. I suspect it could be made to work but you would probably have to download and compile a later version of sox and possibly lame. It works fine on the RPi2 and Odroid which is where I use it. 

I run this script weekly with a cron to play ARRL news on my hub.

I remember past discussions on this, but I don't know what the best way to do it is. Does anybody here have a good solution for airing AR newsline / do you have the code to download it, play it etc.? 
The repeater someone asked the possibility of airing news-line does have a hardware timeout timer, so AllStar would have to somehow manually un-key every few minutes and then continue playing.
