Subject: [ScoutRadio] Lists for JOTA StationsA big thank you for the efforts to compile lists of stations participating in JOTA and the information regarding those stations with Echolink facilities.But could the suppliers for the information please consider when entering the details, the stations operating 'Out in the Sticks' that no not have an Internet connections and have to work through remote repeater stations. It is no good just giving the callsign for a node, the node number is required if these stations are to try to contact you.The times that a Station is to be operating is also necessary, not just "Saturday".After many emails to the person that entered the details on the sites with lists, I managed to make my own list of 55 stations that said that they were going to use Echolink -I only managed a contact with 6 of the stations. Majority of the time I got "Node not found", meaning they were not connected.Thank you to the stations that did call us, via the repeater, and made the 'Echolink' station a partial success.Ivor A.
