New olreans,Louisiana Via Echo link.
- There is a repeater on Echo link that links downtown new orleans. I
met some mighty fine fella's there last night kb2rip,its nice to know
there are good old fashioned non political people out there to talk
too. I talked to pat for quite some time last night and we had a ball
I plan to be on the repeater in the future. The subject of topic
Echolink and HAM radio and its problems was discussed for quite some
time. The question of the evening Linking Repeater VIA echolink?whats
the rules can we if we acknowledge we are the control operator or
what? Nobody seemed to know the answer to this question. Another
question came up as to mandatory ackowledgement of your callsign's on
certain repeater link's. I dont think so, I and several other's have
Boycotted these perticuliar links to include repeaters that announce
your callsign when you link to ther repeater than they expect you to
announce your call sign again,then they say that you will be band
from the machine if you dont? What is up with that? I dont beleive in
this stipulation and wont communicate on this perticular machines.
You dont have to on the regular ham band and you shouldnt on the
ECHOLINK side either as far as I am concerned. Just another hams
point of veiw.
