June 2020 - Allstar was added in addition to Echolink with using a Raspberry Pi 2 for the 6 meter and 440 repeater. A pi 3b+ is being used as a hub located at KB3AWQ's house

Visit http://www.echolink.org for more info on using from your computer or cellphone, the normal FCC rules apply. ID when entering commands on repeaters and after connecting to a node. Even when kerchunking a repeater your suppose to ID before going to the next one. 73 and have fun!


KB3AWQ-L Echolink Node # 549933 is currently not in use.

KB3AWQ-R Echolink Node # 277377 is being used

and

Allstarlink Node #'s

513960 - 444.900 PL 173.8 Repeater

513961 - 52.490 PL 173.8 Simplex

513962 - 29.500 PL 173.8 Simplex (not on air yet)

513963 - Hub server only for incoming connections to connect in to the system as there is something keeping it from connecting at the tower site.


444.900 PL 173.8 repeater and 52.490 PL 173.8 and 29.500 PL 173.8 Simplex are linked together through Allstar and 147.300 is RF linked - All four full-time linked to each other.

Mandatory Command Codes

These are the mandatory command codes which all Allstar Link nodes must support to provide command code consistency to the users. Command CodeDescription

*1nodeDisconnect Link

*2nodeConnect link in monitor mode

*3nodeConnect link in transcieve mode

*4nodeEnter command mode on a remote node

*70Local connection status

*99DTMF Phone Key (Assert PTT from Phone Portal)

Notes

  1. node is an Allstar Link node number

  2. Node number zero (0) is shorthand for the last node operated on by a previous command

  3. Monitor mode means listen to a node, but do not send any audio to it

  4. Command mode means send all received DTMF digits to the node number specified (bypassing the local command decoder). Send # to exit command mode, and restore local command decoding.
