Hi Keith, The IRLP hardware is in the process of being moved (at a
pace matching that of a glacier ) to another members QTH where the RF
link will work. When done it will be open to all.
End of reply to Keith.
Start pot stirring. ( not a flame I would just like to know how
others on the list feel )
Why not send an email or a text message or call on a cell phone? Like
IRLP they use the same infrastructure that Ham radio is supposed to back up.
