I am a Ham - my callsign is KD8VD. I became a member of ARC
The WBCCI Amateur Radio Club expecting to see quite a bit of interest in Ham Radio in Airstreams, but todate the activity if Zero.
I probably will not renew my membership unless there is some activity in the club.

Thumbs up Echolink

Dr Joe and all,
Echolink is a small program that is useable only by a licensed ham radio operator. It allows you to cross-link or in some cases link directly to the vhf or hf band via the internet. Thus the reason why you must be a licensed ham.
I've tried it and, it works very nicely~!
http://www.echolink.org/el/register_data.asp
All you need to do is registered first and,then download the program.
The registeration is for the purpose of validation of your ham license..BEST OF ALL, IT'S FREE~!

Lightbulb Node

Greetings..
If anyone would like to try out ECHOLINK..
Look for my NODE number which is 45216
Each one that register is assigned a Node number..Look for it on the far right hand side of the contact menu.

To All:
Thanks to Vern, I am now on Echolink, as KD8VD, Node Number 56762, and the system is working beautifully - Have talked with stations in Australia, Germany and over US with No problems.

Under the top menu you'll see a "Bell" icon..I've listed you on my alarm online list there..Just to help increase our chances of connecting..
Really sounds like you're having a Blast with it~!
