Yes - I know IRLP. The RMRL has IRLP on one of their repeaters, my membership is still being processed so I have not gotten the access codes yet. The WA2YZT
repeater (146.805 PL 186.2) is open to the public and does not require special codes. I stumbled across this repeater and have been using it to talk in NM, OK and have been trying to talk w/ Antarctica. About a week ago, the node owner Paul came on and we chatted a bit - a real nice guy and he seemed to be pleased the node was being put to use. In the early mornings, it is usually dialed into TN.
IRLP is pretty cool, you punch in the IRLP node number for the station and it hooks you right up. My son's Technician license hit the database last Thursday and later that night he was chatting it up with 3 people on Ohau (sp) in HI via the IRLP.
