    The *ARUFON* net confrences on Echolink 712627 on Saturdays at 0001Z but it also transmits over HF freq 3845 KHz. When an Echolink node is tied to a General Priviledges Freq like this, it is only for a tech to monitor correct? The tech should not use this node right? Thx.

    When configured to transmit over an HF frequency where automatic control is not permitted, there has to be a control operator on duty for the RF part of the connection. All transmissions are going out under the license of that control operator, whoever he is. So, that control operator is in charge of that portion, and everyone else operates as third party traffic, so third party rules would be in place.

    It would not be permissible to let people talk automatically over this link, without a control operator present, at least under US rules.

    Also, to add, the operator of the RF portion of the link is the control operator (usually the callsign on the Node).

    In a conference, each RF node connected has its own control operator. Therefore for the HF station connected, the person with the HF privileges should be the control operator of the Echolink-connected node. 3rd Party rules apply.
