The RV Radio Network EchoLink Net

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:

You can use this step-by-step EchoLink Installation Guide to help you download and install the software you need to access EchoLink from a PC. For a mobile divice just install the EchoLink App that is appropriate to your Android or IOS device. You will also need to upload an "Official Copy" of your license (available on the FCC website) in order to get authorization to use the EchoLink network. The installation guide will walk you through that process as well. It is quick and easy if you have previously registered with FCC/ULS. If you have not registered you sould do so now even if you do not intend to use EcohLink.

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.
