AllStar Operating Procedures

The node is open for local use by all hams. To connect to AllStar, simply key your transmitter and, using your touch tone pad, input *3(node number). To disconnect, key your transmitter and touch tone *1(node number). To disconnect all nodes, key your transmitter and touch tone *76. Please pause for 2 seconds after you key the transmitter before you speak or enter touch tones. This allows the connection to complete across the network and helps avoid dropping syllables or words from the start of your transmission. It will also ensure that touch tones are decoded properly. Please pause between transmissions to allow other stations to call or disconnect. Always disconnect the node when you are finished with your QSO. If the node is connected and you wish to connect to a different node, please ask if anyone locally is using the node. If there is no response, feel free to disconnect and connect to the node of your choice.
