    I have been a ham since 1980 but I have never talked to any other station on 2 meter FM. This weekend I have attempted to contact someone using IRLP to reach the WIN system (because I hear stations talking there online) but I have not been able to do so using a local repeater that has IRLP. Is there someone who can assist me in making a qso using a repeater? Thanks, Dave kw4tj.

    You should get a two meter FM radio, Put up an antenna,
    and quit using the internet. (except for e-mail and posting on QRZ,com :D )

    IRLP requires DTMF commands to connect to other nodes. You need to contact the repeater owner and get instructions on how to use the IRPL node on his repeater.
