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.

This is most interesting~!! Greeting~
I have a ftdx-757 that, I'm looking forward to using once other projects are completed.
Like to hear abt any ant, etc ideas that have proven to work..
Okay, since we've started that..."Another question.."How many of you have heard of ECHOLINK??
BTW, Maybe we can talk ANDY into giving us our own little spot under Airstream Community Forums?? Anyone interested in that?

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~!
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~!

OK Thanks a lot - I have downloaded Echolink and all is well. Will try and use it soon.

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. :)

Look out
Dr Joe,
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~!
