I’m active on Echolink so look out for my callsign in the users list and, if I’m there, please give me a call.
You can now access our local 2 metre repeater GB3RW via EchoLink. Search for GB3RW-R on your device. I monitor the repeater so I might meet you there!
For more info on GB3RW and Echolink and AllStar connections, see here.
Echolink has been around for years and, to be honest, I wasn’t at all keen on the idea. Many people, including me, thought that the system had nothing to do with proper radio communication, so we poo pooed the idea. However, Echolink has improved over the years, as has the internet, and it’s now an extremely useful tool.
