The Echolink seems to be working, and hopefully I now have all the bugs worked out of the system. It is linked into the 147.180 + 82.5 KB9SJZ Repeater and are used by the N9JM Whitewater Valley Amateur Radio Club.
To download the Echolink program to your smart phone go to the App Store, and you will have to get your callsign approve by Echolink. If you are approved already to use the program and would like to be added to the KB9SJZ echolink then email your name and callsign to email@example.com. This is a closed system and only open to approved members.
