[App_rpt-users] crontab schedule repeater announcements

I am having trouble getting crontab to schedule playing repeater
announcements. I have successfully recorded IAX speech to "prompt01.gsm".

 I created a script /etc/asterisk/scripts/announcements01.sh.

# Script plays prompt01 audio files over local node (repeater)
/usr/sbin/asterisk -rx "rpt localplay 42996 /etc/asterisk/scripts/prompt01"

Via terminal, I can enter "announcements01" and hear the node play the
repeater announcements.

My crontab -e is:

# I have tried all the following script treatments!
# m h  dom mon dow   command

* * * * * ./announcements01
* * * * * ./announcements01.sh
* * * * * . /announcements01.sh  # dot space  announcements01.sh
* * * * * announcements01.sh      # chmod u-x announcements01.sh (to make

I have used the crontab to pass text to a file every minute..no problems;
so cron is running.
I am logged into ROOT.

Any suggestions as to HOW to get crontab to run my announcements01.sh
script would be MUCH appreciated!
