    Announcement Preemption

    Any V1 alert announcement will preempt any non-V1 announcement. V1 alert announcements will preempt other V1 alert announcements in the following hierarchy: Laser > Ka > K > Ku > X. Same-band announcements will be preempted if a new alert has the same or greater front signal strength. Except for data timeout announcements, non-V1 announcements do not preempt any other announcement.

    Announcement Cancellation

    Any K-, Ku-, or X-band alert announcement will be cancelled if the alert is either inactive (signal gone) or muted prior to the actual announcement. This option is incorrectly named "Announcement Cancel" in the app (will fix later).
