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.
