hi Bob and all,
further to that system is another one for amatuers...
called IRLP Internet Radio Linking Project http://www.irlp.net/
this is a great one i have been making regular contacts with amateurs in
the USA and Canada over the last 5-8 weeks.
amateur 2 metre (146.xxx MHZ) and 70cm (438.xxx MHz) repeaters are
connected to the internet via the appropriate modems and using a well known
voice chat program called Speak Freely.
each repeater (Node) connected to the system has a 4 digi number assigned
to it that # is dialld up using a DTMF keypad on the radio's microphone or
by another DTMF source held up to the microphone. the # 73 is used to
close the link after u have finished ur conversation. maybe some of u
amateur operaters out there can find a link close to ur home and we can try
the node # for my repeater is 6010 (for greater Sydney, OZ, region)
there is a complete list of active nodes and their status at
last sunday nite had a great chat to an amateur in Tacoma, WA who also has
as i discovered a keen interest in earthquakes.
happy new year all
