IRLP - Echolink - EchoIRLP

IRLP provides access to the world-wide computer network created by VE3LTD - Dave Cameron.  Find more information about IRLP at www.irlp.net, how to use this system and the recommended protocols. 

 EchoIRLP is new as of Nov. 2014 and now offers both IRLP and Echolink using the same IP network.  To use Echolink, use prefix of "A3" (no quotes) in front of Echolink nodes or Conferences. This prefix permits the controller to determine what system you are using.  IRLP - no prefix, Echolink - use prefix A3.

NOTE:  When a  repeater is connected to IRLP or Echolink, there will be a "marker" tone transmitted periodically.  When you hear this tone, the repeater is "connected" and you should listen to determine if anyone is using the link.  If you do not hear any communication, you may wish to ask if anyone is using EchoIRLP and wait briefly for a response.  Hearing none, either disconnect and begin to use the repeater or announce your call, location and ask if anyone is listening.

To encourage use of the repeater, a computer will perform an "auto-connect" to a random EchoIRLP node.  After some period of repeater silence, the computer will select a random EchoIRLP node, Reflector or Conference and if the selected connection is not currently in use, an attempt to "connect" with the node selected will start.  Sometimes nodes may be listed as available for a connection but may not connect successfully.  There are many reasons for this and the EchoIRLP system will generally announce a problem with the node.
