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
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.

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.
