Those are great radios and I have the same. See the posting below your first one to see answer to getting echolink set up. There is also a boot camp article on it. Welcome to the hobby, see you on the Friday Night Forum.

Can you post the link to the article on how to set up Echolink?

I got lots of props. Thanks to terryd
@Brentc17 Do you know if the Capital Peak Repeater could/would run the echo link for this net? I have Echolink on my phone and have tried to participate on the net once or twice but it is pretty cumbersome. It would be great to participate using the radio. If not the Capital Peak are you aware of any others in the area that might? I am not far from you. Thanks.

Does this help? (Though it is Android, looking at the images on Itunes they look quite similar.)

Yes, they are ok with it. I talked to the vice president about it (Jeremy). My hesitation has been that its 5:30 our time and that is when the locals use it the most. Are you a member of the Capital Peak Repeater? I am and have the codes but you need to be a member to do it. Any repeater listed on Echolink will be able to do it, just need to find one that doesn't get much use. I know there is one in Seattle but haven't looked at any others. I am headed back tomorrow from AZ so will look into it more when I get back. If you find something that works let me know.

Thank you for checking on that. I have been a member in the past but let it lapse as I was not using my radio much. It is well worth the price though as they seem to take really good care of their equipment and their coverage is phenomenal. If Jeremy doesn't mind it being linked for this it might be useful in making more locals aware of OB.

I just got my HAM license this past Wednesday. I was directed here to checkout the Net by K7XPO(Brien). I'm all setup on EchoLink and I'm hoping to join tonight!
Welcome. Probably won't be able to get online tonight. I just moved to Park City, UT and I am moving into my apartment tonight, but hope to hear from you next week.

Good evening everybody. Thank you to everyone who could join the net tonight.
Despite network issues with Echolink we had a really interesting discussion on Software Defined Radio. My notes do not do justice to our discussion so I'll leave it to the group to decide if we should bring this topic up again when internet propagation is better.

Check-in's tonight:
K5TIN Shane - Net Control
N7PHY Ed - Backup Net Control
AB5JK Jimi
N9SAL David
W4FOZ Jeff
WD6TED Ted
WX5SKY Jon
KF4YLM Josh (VA repeater owner)
W8ILL Ole Man Will (Grits n Gravy Host)
KD5BUC Hugo (1st time check-in!)
VK2DY Robert (Australia)
WA4LPR Dennis
KN4E?? - Couldn't quite pull you in, very sorry.

Hope to catch everyone next Friday.
Best of luck to Field Day participants this weekend!
