April 12 marks start of combined IRLP/EchoLink net

E-mail Print PDF
Last month's TALARC newsletter offered details on the start-up of a monthly combined IRLP/EchoLink net, to begin this month and continue thereafter on the second Wednesday of each month at 9 p.m. Eastern [0100Z]. The IRLP node is 9735. The EchoLink conference node is *CROSSRDS* which also operates on the 9735 node. As such, those calling in via the *CROSSRDS* EchoLink conference node will hear those calling in on IRLP node 9735, and vice versa. The TALARC board hopes that this mid-week, later-in-the-day change from the previous IRLP net will increase member participation in net operations. For those who participate in the existing EchoLink net on the *FMCA-ARC* conference node, note that *FMCA-ARC* net will continue on the second Saturday of each month at noon Eastern. If either of these modes, IRLP or EchoLink, are of interest to you, please review the March TALARC newsletter at, or read the article at

A veteran’s family must request a United States flag.

A flag is provided at no cost to drape the casket or accompany the urn of a deceased veteran. Generally, the flag is given to the next of kin. Only one flag may be provided per veteran. Upon the request of the family, an “Application for United States Flag for Burial Purposes” (VA Form 21-2008) must be submitted along with a copy of the veteran’s discharge papers. Flags may be obtained from VA regional offices and most U.S. Post Offices.
