The Internet Radio Linking Project (IRLP) is a closed-source project that links amateur radio stations around the world with Voice over IP (VoIP). Each gateway consists of a dedicated computer running custom software that is connected to both a radio and the Internet. This arrangement forms what is known as an IRLP Node. Since all end users communicate using a radio as opposed to using a computer directly, IRLP has adopted the motto “Keeping the ‘Radio’ in Amateur Radio”.

EchoIRLP Update

Relocation of N4LX EchoIRLP is complete and should now provide good coverage of Cullman and surrounding areas on 146.480 MHz. The omnidirectional antenna is approximately 70 feet above average terrain and provides approximately 8.5 dB gain to the node’s 50 watt output. The node requires a 156.7 PL for access. IRLP 4742 is operational on the node at this time. However, EchoLink N4LX-L (882043) will be unavailable until further reconfiguration can be completed. As a result, the Monday night Kansas …

UARC Net Changes

Effective immediately, the University [of Alabama] Amateur Radio Club Thursday Night Net will move to IRLP reflector 9667 and EchoLink node NL7EZ-R. In addition, the net will now be accessible through AllStar node 42257. UARC thanks Ralph KL7RW and Chris NL7EZ for their generosity in allowing us to use their IRLP reflector and bridges to the other VOIP networks. Please see the UARC Net page for a full list of access points for the net.

N4LX EchoIRLP On the Air

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 147.480 MHz and requires a 156.7 PL for access. A 156.7 PL is also transmitted. Please see the EchoIRLP page for more information.
