Everyone, I will be your NET Controller tomorrow night for the Overland Bound weekly NET. Please join us on the Echolink Node at 5:30pm pst. Topic will be 2020 Overland trip planning. See you there. W7BR
I am going to try and join the NET for sure!! I will be at work (I'm a Firefighter/paramedic so I should be able to get on pending anyone calling 911 lol) I have never used an echolink repeater before though and I am not exactly sure how to use it to get on. According to Repeaterbook I have a 2m echolink repeater nearby. Do I just use the repeater as normal??

You can get a hold of the repeater owner and find out what codes or tones are needed to access the echolink system on the repeater. The node number is in the meet up info (sorry don't have it handy). You can also download the app for phone or computer and set it up. It usually takes about 15 min to get everything working so don't wait till last min if you go that route. Look forward to hearing you on the NET tomorrow night. Brent

Same here man we were on a call during the last net. I'm going to try to jump in this week though I'll be doing it via smartphone as I don't have any echolink repeaters closeby.

Just to let everyone here know, the Overland Bound Net is tomorrow night 5:30p PDT, 8:30p EDT. The topics will be "Things that you bolt onto your vehicle" e.g. awnings, racks, ladders. On the second round we will discuss vehicle security. I'll be the net control and look forward to hearing all of you on Echolink *USA-GNG* USA Grits n' Gravy conference server 591550. All you need is a cell phone or computer and an Echolink app. It''s pretty easy and always a good time.
