Good luck on the General test! I'm sure you'll knock it out of the park.@TerryD and @Michael, not a problem at all. Family always comes first.
@12poundtest , thanks for clearing that up. I obviously completely whiffed what you said. I'm not sure if its my Old Timers or my allergies acting up tonight, so.... LOL
ETA: I'm also going tomorrow to take my upgrade test for General, so that may have me a bit distracted too.
Jason. First get permission from repeater owner and codes to turn on echolink. If ok then you will be able to enter dmtf codes and have the repeater connect. Just remember that everyone listening on that repeater will be on our net ( which can be good) and nobody can use until you disconnectI need some help/info. New to this ham business and echo link. I typically get on using my phone app. This next Friday I'll be at an overland bound rally in southern UT and won't have cell service. There is an echo link repeater near out site. How can I use my HT to join our ham net through the repeater? Or am I dreaming since I won't have a computer? I have a boefang uv-5r.
