                 EchoLink and IRLP are both available on VE3IRO


Using IRLP


Our IRLP node number is 2091.  To connect to another node is very simple.

     1.  Find the node number of the node you want to connect to.  For a list of           numbers check http://status.irlp.net/index.php

     2.  Once you know the node number, announce your call sign on VE3IRO and           state the node number you are trying to connect to.  Then, using your           DTMF pad, enter the node number.  You should hear an announcement           once your are connected.     

     3.  To disconnect, simply use your DTMF pad and enter “73”.

     4.  You can practice by connecting to the IRLP echo reflector at 9990.


Using EchoLink


There are multiple ways to use EchoLink.  The repeater is connected to node number 364655 and the call sign of this node is VE3IRO-R.  


A.  Using your radio as the source:

     1.  In this method you are using a radio to connect the repeater to another           EchoLink node.  You can find a list of nodes at           http://www.echolink.org/links.jsp  or           http://www.repeaterbook.com/repeaters/echolink/

     2.  Once you know the node number announce your call sign on VE3IRO and           state the node number you are trying to connect to.  Then, using your           DTMF pad, enter “#” followed by the node number, eg: #364655.  You           should hear an announcement once you are connected.

     3.  To disconnect from the node simply use your DTMF pad and enter 73.

     4.  You can practice by connecting to the test node #9999.

B.   Using a computer (or smart phone) as the source:

     1.  You need to download and install the EchoLink software.  You can start           here http://www.echolink.org/register_data.jsp.  EchoLink is also available           for iOS.  Before you can use the software you will need to have your call           sign validated.  Instructions for this are on the site.

     2.  Once you are validated, launch the software and follow the instructions in           the software for connecting to a node.

     3.  Again, to connect via your computer to the VE3IRO repeater use node           number 364655 or search for call sign VE3IRO-R.

C.   In summary, using your radio to:

     1.  Connect to an IRLP node just enter the node number.

     2.  Connect to an EchoLink node enter # followed by the node number.

     3.  Disconnect from either type of node enter “73”.
