EchoLink

EchoLink is a popular format for Amateur Radio operators to communicate around the world. It provides interconnection between many local linked radios, repeaters and PCs, NotePads and smart phones. You will need to down load the application and register your callsign. The application works very well on various smart phones. Some configuration may be needed to work on private WiFi networks and Personal Computers.

EchoLink is an ideal way for Scouts and Girl Guides to get on air quickly once they have obtained their Amateur Radio license. Scouts and Guides are welcome to use the dedicated JOTA Conference servers, some of which are dedicated to specific languages.

In Australia we have *SCOUT-VK* and invite Scouts and Girl Guides to use this conference server. Other conference servers will be available for JOTA, search for JOTA or SCOUT.
