Echolink

General News
October 9, 2014
GSARC Members,
Echolink has been installed on the W4GS 145.110 Mhz repeater.  This repeater is listed in the Echolink database as station W4GS-R, location Myrtle Beach, SC, and the node number is 251505. The GSARC is currently running two nets per week on the 145.110 repeater, Sunday and Thursday nights at 8:00pm.  We will be updated our net preamble to include Echolink check-ins after short time, mobile and maritime stations.  Currently, Echolink is programmed to allow three Echolink stations to monitor the net at the same time.  This can be adjusted as we start to get feedback from our members.
We look forward to checking in our out of town members and talking to them during the rag chew portion of the net.
