Default Anyone use Yaesu's "ARTS" feature?

Anyone use this? I feel like I'm typically meeting up with others a day or two into a trip or we're meeting others and randomly calling out to see if anyone copies.

ARTS seems like a good way to know when you have radio contact.

Basically, ARTS is a feature that sends a DCS code every 25 seconds on a given freq.. When you set both radios to the same DCS and enable ARTS, you'll get a tone and indication that your other party is "inrange".

There is so much about my radio that I don't understand or use. This is one of them.
