K5VPW - IRLP Node 3364
441.050mHz, pl 136.5 - San Antonio, Texas USA

IRLP Operating Procedures

The node is open to all hams. There are no access codes. Please ID before and after using the node. To connect, simply key your transmitter and, using your touch tone pad, input the four digit node number that you wish to connect. To disconnect, key your transmitter and touch tone 73. 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. All connections will time out and disconnect if there is no local activity within 30 minutes. If the node is connected and you wish to connect to a different reflector or node, please ask if anyone locally is using the node. If there is no response, feel free to disconnect and connect to the reflector or node of your choice.
