how ham radio is being used around the world: Ham Radio
can join the various nets or just listen on a repeater, Echolink
or an IRLP node.
To see the list of IRLP reflectors click
here. There you will see the 9250 Western Reflector listed. This
is where the Echolink Conferences are hosted on Echolink
thanks to NARRI and Kent Johnson. Note the tabs at the top. You can
find active nodes by number. (When you are signed in on Echolink,
you will see the numbers listed) Note that the 9250 has 9 channels
shown. The World conference is actually on channel 1 and shows in
Echolink as 9251 because the Vegas and Pahrump (UHF) repeaters switch
from 9250 to 9251 twice daily for the World conference nets. 9250
is the Hi-Gate conference on echolink. The VHF repeater in Pahrum
is on 9251 24/7.
To find out more about the channels used by the Western Reflector
go to the NARRI web page. On the
left side is a list of the various information about the system.
