    Trying to connect to local repeaters while on vacation in FL. Repeaterbook has node numbers for those with
    E--link, but I'm not finding a way to enter it. How is this done with an Android phone? Thanks in advance!

    Node numbers are primarily for connecting to nodes via a radio, using the DTMF buttons on the keypad. If you are logging directly into EchoLink, such as with an Android phone, you just need to look up the node's callsign and tap to connect. Or, if you happen to know the node number, use the Search function and enter the node number to find the callsign.

    Ummm, no. Tried that but none of the node numbers I searched for returned anything. I guess none of the nodes are still functional? Seems unlikely. ??

    Normally that means that they are Off Line. Or they are not accepting connections.

    Some nodes do come and go.

    Either the node you're seeking was temporarily off line, or the information source you're using is out of date. What are a couple of examples of nodes you've been seeking?

    Sorry so slow to reply, but back in UT now. I can't remember them now, but one was near Weston, FL. and another near Key West. Tried a search for both node number and repeater call sign appended -r with no luck.
