DELAR

Amateur Radio has always been at the leading edge of communication technology. In fact, most of what we enjoy today was first developed in Amateur Radio. We’re no different now- making use of the Internet to link otherwise local-range radios to communications systems around the world at the touch of a button. One of the club’s operators is Gary, KE8O, who has taken the time to put together some operating aids for us.

Requirements

Requirements:

Must be a licensed Amateur Radio Operator. DTMF microphone is required to establish and bring down a connection. DTMF is not required if the remote node, or someone else establishes the connection for you. Before you can make a connection you need to know the IRLP node, reflector, or EchoLink number that you would like to contact. You can obtain this information my visiting the IRLP Status Page http://status.irlp.net/ or EchoLink Current Logins http://www.echolink.org/logins.jsp websites. The IRLP and EchoLink VOIP networks have thousands of Nodes, Conferences and Stations world wide.  

To access the system:

Key up and identify yourself and that you'll be using IRLP. “K8EHB accessing IRLP" While you’re still keyed up enter the IRLP node on your DTMF microphone "3820". Unkey your microphone and listen for the node's connection announcement. "Welcome to the Valley of the Sun, KC7GHT link on" When first connecting, remember you may be dropping into a conversation in progress, so wait 30 seconds or so before transmitting to avoid interrupting a QSO. Calling CQ is a great way to solicit a contact. Every Ham knows what it means. "CQ this is Kilo_8_Echo_Hotel_Bravo, K8EHB, Delaware, Ohio....CQ" Remember ...."I-Layer" propagation is very reliable so a 1 by 1 CQ is sufficient ;-) To bring down the IRLP connection key up your microphone and enter "73".                                                                                            You will hear the disconnection announcement: "Goodbye from the Valley of the Sun, KC7GHT link off".    Please don’t forget to identify yourself after you bring down the link.                       All topics of conversation within the realm of "Good Amateur Practice" are allowed. There are no specifically prohibited topics, but remember that you could have an international audience.
