    I am wondering what the chances of successfully setting up a mobile IRLP Node would be. I in-vision having a Link node setup pointed at my home repeater, along with a Reflector server. (So I could link the Repeater to the Reflector to allow more users). I then would have a node setup in my mobile using a separate autonomous system other then my normal 2m/440. My internet would be provided by a wifi connection Sprint Mifi Wireless provider.

    I guess my main questions revolve around how much bandwidth does IRLP tend to eat up. Sprint caps me at 5GB per month and its not the ONLY thing this connection would be used for. I know that if I stream a movie or two and my 5GB is toast, but I CAN seem to use voice over internet such as Ventrillo or Mumble (Something like skype) about as much as I want it seems with no problem. Would it be similar to other VoIP protocols in bandwidth, or is it more intensive streaming?

    It would be similar to what you use for Skype. But keep tabs on how much you use.
