Geocaching Ham Radio Net

Recommended Posts

well, i Finally remembered to drop in and no one else did. lol

Sorry, I had like 10 geocoin trades to get in the mail, so decided not to procrastinate any longer. It's been way too long since I've checked in to the Geocaching Talk Net...

Yup we need all the cachers we can get to get into checking in

 

I tried, but our local IRLP node is down this evening, and I wasn't at home to use Echolink. Better luck next week...

How about just setting up a Geocaching Conference on Echolink. Seems like there is one for every other subject. Everyone could just drop by and chat at will. Just a thought.

How do you set up a conference on Echolink??

I emailed Echolink support on directions to start a conference. You will need a separate computer to run. Here is the webpage if anybody is interested in starting it up. I would, however, I only have one computer.

If anybody sets up the conference, please inform us so we can all jump in.

I have a spare computer but not enough bandwidth to carry on a sizeable conference. However, if you see me on Echolink node# 323341 feel free to give me a shout.

 

73 and happy caching,

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.

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