Geocaching Ham Radio Net

After reading through the info on the link, it looks like echolink will support a conference with up to 99 connections. I am sure that a computer on cable or DSL could probably support this. I think having a dedicated conference utilizing the bridge software would probably be something to shoot for in the future if there was enough interest. Did the net ever have more than 99 connections? I am in the process of moving the shack from one side of the house to the other but after I get everything moved, I do have a couple Pentium IIs that I might be able to press into service. I will have to see if SvxLink supports conferences because I have no computers that run windoze. Good discussion here though.

OK...guess I should have read a little more before posting. Assuming 128 kps upstream for DSL, this would only support 5-7 connections at 17 kps each. I am wondering if FOIS would be any different. I guess to set up the conference it would require access to very high bandwidth. If the discussion stays active, maybe a ham out there with their own server might be able to provide a little space. I will keep my eyes and ears open.

 

Thanks for the echolink education

You're in the right section. This particular thread however is for a geocaching net on Echolink. You are more then welcome to start a new thread in the GPS and Ham Radio section.

HAS ANYONE ELSE BEEN HARASSED BY THE VOLUNTEERS AFTER PLACING A CACHE? sorry about the caps,

i have placed 4 caches and have had nothing but problems.. I thought this was supposed to be fun?

 

I would guess that this belongs in the "Getting Started" or "Geocaching Topics" section.
