MARQUETTE REPEATER ASSOCICATION ECHOLINK ON 146.97 or 444.800+ REPEATERS To check status use the star key To connect to node number just key the number in (Example 123456 ) To disconnect key 73 Use star key to check connect status. If you hear that it is connected just ID and ask if it is being used. If there is no responds then go ahead and make the connect you want, either by using the node number you want if you know it or by using the numbers for one of the shortcuts I have put in for local UP Echolink repeaters. To disconnect when you are done just key 73. This will just disconnect the last connected station. If there was another connected before that you just use 73 again and it will disconnect that one. 73 will disconnect by last repeater connected. Remember when you connect to wait a few seconds and then ID or make a call for someone like you would normally do on any repeater. Also you will have to learn to leave a pause to let repeaters drop between transmissions. Here are the shortcuts I put in. Feel free to use them. 888 - K6IPC-R HOUGHTON REPEATER 887 - K9MLD-R IRONWOOD REPEATER 886 - KB0P-R ISHPEMING REPEATER (KB0P'S OWN REPEATER) 885 - KC8QZG-R NEWBERRY REPEATER 884 - KD8JAM-R CALUMET REPEATER 883 - W8PIF-R MENOMINEE REPEATER 882 - KB0P-L NEGAUNEE REPEATER (HARA 147.270) 555 - RANDOM CONFRENCES 444 - RANDOM USERS 333 - RANDOM REPEATERS OR LINKS (BASICLY THIS ARE THE SAME) When you use these random codes you do not need to know any node numbers to have fun. You will not know where in the world you will be connected too. Treat it like a repeater when you connect and put your call out.
