The IRLP Logo
IRLP and EchoLink add to the Ham Radio hobby.  We have added this feature to our system for your enjoyment.

  • IRLP Guide First, please get used to how IRLP is to operate. Remember, the system needs long delays between users (key 2 seconds before talking and wait for the beep.)
  • Curtis, KI7ESW, is hosting the IRLP system and having fun with the Linux software used to send voices from the repeater through the internet. Currently the 145.29 repeater is being used although on occasions we will use it on any of the WA7ABU repeaters. If you run into Curtis on the repeater, let him know you appreciate his work.
  • The IRLP or EchoLink system is capable of connecting you to points all around the world. The way to determine where you connect is by a DTMF command from your radio, so you will need access to the DTMF commands.
  • To make a contact, first listen to the repeater for a few minutes, then after looking up the node number at the IRLP site or learning what node you wish to contact, hold down your PTT key and put in the numbers in quick succession, like on a phone.
  • After finishing up and leaving your proper call ID, (your callsign), then send the command "73". You should then hear an announcement that the node is disconnecting and you are done or can connect to another node or reflector.
  • OHHHHH REFLECTORS ! Yes, Ham Radio has chat rooms. You can connect to a reflector and join in group conversations. Reflectors can be up as long as there is some activity, but disconnect if not used for 20 minutes. Then you may reconnect if needed. Hang around long enough to disconnect or turn the repeater over to another local ham.
  • EchoLink: We have also connected EchoLink in addition to IRLP. To see the page for EchoLink click on this link. Our Echolink node is #592473. Since we beleive in connecting radios, our links mostly work to real Radios / Repeaters and Nodes.
  • Have fun with the system.
  • Our Echo/IRLP DTMF Commands
