SARTS Talk Mar 2015: Echolink – interfacing, demonstration and possibilities by Royce Ng 9V1AN

In Jan 2015, Andrew 9V1TT talked on DSTAR. At that talk, there was a question from Frankie 9V1FZ regarding the difference in capabilities between DSTAR and Echolink. We all knew that Frankie, Royce and a few others had already been dabbling with Echolink.

Royce was keen to interface his handies to Echolink and wanted to give a talk if he could get his interface completed in time.

The following month, we had the AGM, so Royce had 2 months to get his demo prepared.

At the talk given in March, there was a practical demo where he connected a Raspberry Pi to the internet (via a wireless hotspot) to act as an Echolink node. Members tuned their handies to 145.500 and tested out the link. We even managed to contact our old friend Shiro 9V1PW in Japan.

Here are the presentation materials:
