IRLP Nodes will be Down

Merry Christmas everyone! Due to approaching weather that is likely to cause icing and power outages and no one around to monitor the repeaters, we have decided to turn off both IRLP nodes until Tuesday. Both repeaters will be left on but the nodes will be turned off.  If the repeater site loses power, you […]

New IRLP node Has Arrived for 146.7 MHz Repeater

We received the package in the mail this weekend for the new node and so we’ll have it installed this week.  As we’ve mentioned before, these nodes are being run on Raspberry Pi computers so they will use a fraction of the power that we were using before and just as importantly, they will be […]

New IRLP Node Ordered for 146.7

Our 443.3 repeater and IRLP node is online now working smoothly.  As you may have read in previous posts, we replaced the IRLP node with a new Raspberry Pi, or PiRLP node. We even decided to go with a new node number dropping the old 8440 and replacing it with 4122.  We could have re-used […]

Simplex IRLP Node 7734

Today I replaced the node computer for my Simplex IRLP node 7734.  Above you can see it fully assembled. Forgive the vintage 1932 model monitor. It really doesn’t need a monitor since I administer the node remotely.  On top you can see the DC power supply and the link radio.  It is currently hooked up simplex […]

IRLP Node 3867 Issues

Our Internet Radio Linking Project (IRLP) node 3867 that is on our 146.7 MHz repeater has died.  The computer has reached the end of its life though the node will be moved onto another computer. It will be off for a couple days but as soon as we get another computer for this project, it […]

Repeater During Storms

With potential severe weather this afternoon in the area, we may decide to disconnect the repeaters in the event of a lot of lightning.  The repeaters and their respective IRLP/Echolink nodes are very expensive equipment and it only makes sense to take whatever precautions we can.  It is very possible that we get no storms […]

Node 4122 on 443.3 MHz

If you have tried using the IRLP or Echolink nodes on the 443.3 repeater you may have noticed the audio would drop after connecting. We’ve discovered that it was just a simple push to talk (PTT) wirecoming lose from the terminal. We will have that fixed today so it shouldn’t be a problem. We’re sorry […]

146.7 MHz Issues

A couple days ago, K5GLH and W5QO were talking on the 146.7 MHz repeater when they noticed the signal coming back from the repeater was intermittently weak and was preceded by static.  Later, K5GLH received an email from a user saying they experienced the same thing while connected to an IRLP node.  At first we […]

APRS Objects

This week we added Automatic Packet Reporting System (APRS) object scripts to both of our IRLP nodes.  This adds an object to the map showing IRLP-4122 and IRLP-3013 at the tower site on the map. The negative side to this is that both objects are on top of each other.  We have set them to […]

Repeater Etiquette

This evening the subject came up on the 443.3 repeater about quick keying and what is acceptable when connected to a link system. There are a couple points on this that are interesting to take note of.   1. Any time you are on a repeater, any repeater, it is a good idea to wait […]
