Irlp/geocache Chat?

Along these same lines, has anyone else tried EchoLink which uses the old ilink database/protocol?

Our local repeater OH2RCH has been using the echolink. Have been QRT a while, so don't know what's the situation today.


Anyway, echolink would be easier to use since there are clients for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. And you don't neccessarily have to have the client running in your own home at all, if there is a station nearby that does.

Hello everyone, I agree with Solarflare, I would like to keep it on Echolink only, not to leave anyone out but It probally would go better. I dont have a IRLP, but I do have a Link on Echolink and all Licensed amateurs are welcomed, All FCC Rules and reg's apply. I am not real active now geo-caching but like to talk about it and have cached for a while, even if I have not found 400-500 or so like they rest, I still like it and hope one day to start caching again. Now deer season is open, It's hard to cache safely while deer hunting is going on, but I would also like to have a IRLP for only for Caching and Geo-cachers to link to or connect up to and to discuss geo-caching.


My link is the WV5V-Llisted in area (5) and is linked into a Local Two Meter Repeater here in my home town.


Please feel free to link up and mention Geo- Caching and I am usually on.

I tried to call you, (WV5V-L SKYWARN/ARES/Ms (1) 18:03 179337), but for some reason the link didn't establish. Guess have to resolve first how to bypass the ADSL-modem's NAT. You can connect me at node 139304, when I'm online. Usually am not though. ;)


Edit: It was just the matter of forwarding the ports 5198/UDP and 5199/UDP to my iBook. Great, all I need now is a sched. :ph34r:

Not in quite the same boat, but would prefer an HF sked....any thoughts on when or what freq?

Seems like IRLP may not be the way to go. How about a sheduled online chat? Anyone know of a chattrom we could use?


What about clayjars chatroom?

BTW renopanner what name do you cache under? I don't recall any logs by you for any of my caches.

Man, I almost forgot there was a forum for Geocaching..


Rusty, I found my first cache when I was using the Renopanner name. Now I decided to just use my "Ham" callsign - KA7CJH.. Guess i will have to search out a few of your caches. I am planning my first multicache in my mind as we speak...


Time to do a pocket query..

Good news, I just got an email from one of the "Western Reflector" control op's saying he has no problem with us having an IRLP/Geocaching Net on their reflector. So now I just need to give him a day/time we all would like to have the net..



:laughing: So time to ask around and see what the best time/day would be..
