I sure hope to hear a few Zeroland call signs next week!

...and will try to listen in next week, "IF" I have a radio in time. I've been lurking the airwaves on a loaner HT from Groucho, but I really need to get it back to him soon.

Once I'm better set up, and not such a nOOb to both RS and HAM, I would volunteer to help with the net, but this will likely be a while.

How would one listen to this? How do I access said node? From a n00b, obviously.

Bill, I hope the local guys will chime in as to what nodes they are using, and if they've opend one up, all you need to do is have that repeater setup on your radio.

Local IRPL nodes:

#3447 KE6DEL Littleton CO USA Freq 441.1500 PL 127.3

#3291 W0CRA Denver CO USA Freq 447.5750 PL 107.2

#3350 N0PQV Denver CO USA Freq 145.3400 PL 103.50

#3990 W0CRA Denver CO USA Freq 147.2250 PL 107.2

Here's some basic's on IRLP use:

On your radio, I know the 145.340 repeater is set up. Depends on who is on and gets there first, but usually someone sets up one of the local repeaters. I know Richardo set up the 146.805 and 147.225 machines before. Other than dialing up the Western Reflector, you will talk into the repeater like normal. Accessing another IRLP node is just a matter of punching in the 4 digit address for it. See how next week shapes up (lots of hurried project meetings around here this week, not good), but I'll come down and we can get into the QSO from KD0RCH's QTH.

I'll be opening the link, to the Western Reflector, at aprox. 19:55 MDST on 146.805 (PL 186.2)

Well 146.805 is out for me, getting to much QRN to be usable. Don't know what happened, I was using it all last weekend to make contacts in South Africa, OZ and New Zealand.

Any members of the CRA going to check in that can open the 147.225 node?

Thanks to everyone that joined in, and special thanks to Andrew Moore - he drove a 160 miles round trip to spend an hour with us.
