Echolink (Amateur Radio)

For those of you that are ham radio operators and not using this, you should download it, just by using a microphone connected to my computer. It's free.

This program is incredible. I was validated in about 10 minutes, and was able to talk to other hams on repeaters all over the country (there are international ones also).
That's absolutely awesome. I hope they verify me quickly.

Are there many Skywarn repeaters hooked up to this? It'll be cool to listen to spotter activity... though it will definiely cause an SDS attack.

EchoLink was discussed widely in our recent HAM sessions ... it is quite awesome. A great way to talk with anyone anywhere, without having a lot of fancy equipment. They gave us CDs with the freeware to install on our computers.
