Internet Relay Linking Project - NPARC node 2248
IRLP or the Internet Relay Linking Project is now operational on the VE3WCR NPARC Club repeater in Fonthill. Amateurs in the Niagara Peninsula now have access to repeaters around the world connected to the system.
What is the Internet Relay Linking Project? By using the internet and voice-over internet protocol or VoIP software, amateur radio operators are able to make contact anywhere in the world by using their local repeater. IRLP operates a worldwide network of dedicated servers and nodes offering very stable worldwide voice communications between hundreds of towns and cities.
To use the IRLP, identify yourself with your call-sign and that you wish to use the IRLP. Key in the four number code of the destination you wish to reach. The node will identify with the four number code. Make your contact. When you are finished, disconnect by pressing 73 and identify that you are finished with the IRLP and clear of the frequency. Our node is 2248. For a complete list of guidelines and to find out more about IRLP, go to http://www.irlp.net. To find out about the status of nodes, go to http://status.irlp.net. To find out more you can also, join our Forums or contact one of the Executive.
If you plan to use the system regularly and you are not an NPARC member, consider joining NPARC as your dues will go to support this worth while project and the repair and operation of the repeater.
Note: If you experience issues (audio drop-outs, ...) while using NPARC’s node 2248, please report them to irlpissue.
