Hi Scott and everyone,
I recommend you post your local Node(s) that you will be monitoring on
this group and on JOTAskedbook at Yahoo Groups. We have found it's
best to make direct calls to Nodes that scout groups will be on. The
use of reflectors and conference nodes causes them to get congested
very quickly, especially when inexperienced users start calling
You may want to look at the two Groups' archives for the past month
for many postings of IRLP and Echolink Nodes.
Also, take a look at www.aprs.org and checkout CQSRVR. APRS is a
great way to contact other scouting groups. Try CQ JOTA and CQ SCOUTS.
