N4LX EchoIRLP

EchoIRLP

The N4LX EchoIRLP node is now active in Cullman. The IRLP node number is 4742 and EchoLink is N4LX-L, node 882043. Because IRLP forbids cross-linking of networks, the node operates as either an IRLP or EchoLink node at any given time. Operation is simplex on 146.480 MHz and requires a 156.7 Hz PL for access. A 156.7 Hz PL is also transmitted.

The node is open to properly licensed radio amateurs exercising good amateur practice, as determined by the control operator. Contentious topics that could alienate other amateurs or non-hams, including – but not limited to – politics and religion, shall be avoided at all times.

Usage

To connect to an IRLP node or reflector, use DTMF tones to enter the node’s or reflector’s four-digit node number. To connect to an EchoLink node, enter star (“*”) followed by the EchoLink node number. To disconnect, enter 73. This command will disconnect all connected EchoLink stations if more than one is connected.
