Hehe--you've obviously never worked at a synchrotron!  The area where 
people generally sit is a cluttered messs of comuters and 
electronics--wires and monitors cover most--if not all--available wall 

We currently use headphones for the audio as echo cancelation is not 
cost effective or likely to work well in such a noisy environment (it 
can top 60db white noise at times).  I do not believe there is any 
practical way to use the AG audio channel for getting someones attention.
