Cub Scouts – November 3, 2018

On Saturday, November 3rd, BSA TROOP 20 AMATEUR RADIO CLUB – WS5BSA is going to be supporting a large Cub Scouting event at Camp John Nichols.  They will be introducing amateur radio to the Cub Scouts and putting them on the air.  They will be using both our 146.7 MHz and our 443.3 MHz repeaters […]

IRLP is Back on 146.700 MHz

Recently you may remember, we took Internet Radio Linking Project (IRLP) nodes off our repeaters and replaced them with Allstar Link.  One of our interface boards (146.700 MHz) repeater was left with a hum.  We made the decision to put the IRLP node 3013 back on this repeater and leave the Allstar Link on the […]

Allstar versus IRLP

We have recently converted our 443.300 MHz repeater from IRLP to Allstar Link.  We turned off IRLP node 3013.  We have started building a new Allstar Link node for our 146.700 MHz repeater as well.  I am looking at ways to see if we can salvage one of the IRLP nodes and have both connected […]

APRS Objects

Echolink on Google Earth

Just wanted to let everyone know that Echolink on Linux now allows reporting location just like IRLP does and we’ve enabled this on our 146.7 MHz repeater.  This repeater, Echolink node 164667, now reports locations on Google Earth and can be found either on the Echolink status page shown here, or by downloading the Google […]

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 […]

Power Outage #2 11/30/15

What a weekend!  The power and Internet are back on at the repeater site and the streaming audio site but there are some IP issues that are being ironed out right now.  The IRLP nodes share the same ports so they require separate external IP addresses. You cannot forward the same port to two different […]
