The RVRN EchoLink net meets each Thursday at 8:00 PM Central time on the SouthEast Conference Node, *SELINK*. During our net, the conference node is connected to the W4GTA/W4EDP, and N4LMC EchoLink repeaters in Lookout Mountain, GA and Signal Mountain, TN providing a large coverage area where local hams are encouraged to participate over RF. We thank Emmett Perdue, W4EDP, and the Tri-States Amateur Radio Club in Lookout Mountain, GA for making these EchoLink resources available to our net.
The EchoLink network can be accessed from a local repeater as well as from a computer or mobile device running the EchoLink software. Regardless of the access method you use, your voice is sent to any EchoLink repeaters connected to the net and transmitted on-the-air from those repeaters so a Technician class license or higher is required.
The RV Radio Network EchoLink net supplements the nightly RV Radio Network HF net. The advantages provided by EchoLink include:
- Available to Technician License Class operators
- Not subject to antenna restrictions
- Can participate even without a radio or antenna
- Participate from camp or RV witout HF mobile
- Access the net from virtually anwyere in the world
- Not affected by poor RF propagation, QRN, or QRM
Please contact me if you have any questions or difficulty setting up or using the EchoLink software. I am by no means an expert, but if I don't know the answer I will get an answer for you.
