Bravo... I really don't have a problem with IRLP's restrictions, and I enjoy using their system. Likewise, I use EchoLink when it suits me, and honestly, my iPhone sounds great over the local repeater, too. I've 'called home' to the local hams from all over the country using both RF and smartphone/computer apps. We have a number of 'ex-pats' who call in here to talk to their old buddies, too. I've heard a lot of Allstar stuff, mostly out west, and it looks like a good system, too. I've considered putting up a simplex node here for it. We have a node for IRLP in town, and we have EchoLink on one club repeater. We do have a DSTAR repeater linked into the statewide DSTAR reflector. The DSTAR is probably the most active.
