Team Fortress 2 - Voice Lines with Animations

Not a particularly interesting post, but I couldn't find this information on the Internet when I searched, so after figuring it out, I thought I should post my results.

Voice lines are not always clear to the other players, but animations are, and this is especially the case if they're on the other team.

They take 5 or less readings a week so this is around a year's worth (the last 220 or so readings).

The Air Quality is on a scale that approximates their warning system.  Usually the only significant things are particulates and Ozone.
Some days they h…
