hi Bob and all,

further to that system is another one for amatuers...
 called  IRLP   Internet Radio Linking Project

  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 ( MHZ) and 70cm ( 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
to contact.

 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
Dave Nelson
