*Members and friends,
I was able to visit the radio site this afternoon and reprogrammed the 2 meter repeater back to 145.13 (- offset, tone 103.5 Hz). It is only linked for our Monday night nets (and special events) to the permanently linked, 6m and 70cm repeaters, at this point in time. The search for a permanent 2m frequency has resumed.

Echolink allows you to connect to other stations using the Internet. There are client applications available for computers as well as mobile devices and smart phones. Echolink currently has an iPhone as well as Android application.

The West Seattle Amateur Radio Club has direct Echolink connection at W7AW-R node number 968672. The repeater can handle up to 10 Internet sessions. Best time to connect is before a net starts or when the repeater is quiet. Net control will occasionally stop regular traffic to allow Internet connections.

A second Echolink connection to the repeater has been provided by radio by K7LER. The Echolink call sign is K7LER-R node number 4515 (to be verified 9/20/2022 by Tom). At this time, this node is permanently pointed to the W7AW repeater.
