Welcome to the Echolink/IRLP tech board! Over the past year, an increasing number of posts have appeared in a number of our boards--reflecting the growing interest and practice of ham radio with these systems of linkage. Members have asked about a dedicated forum, and here it is! This will give a more focused ground, as questions about computer interfacing, operation, repeater linkage, and operating protocol can all be seen in one area--with those interested in such things able to build their own interactive forum community and identity. A word of note. This board is a technical resource--and not a bully pulpit to rail against or advocate for Echolink, IRLP, or VOIP/Remote Control Linkage systems or practice. Such discussion will not be tolerated here. With that, please enjoy this new resource!
