The net meets on the 1st and Third Monday evenings at 7pm Mountain time, 9pm Eastern. We are on the IRLP on the Great Lakes Reflector Node #9615, now the national SBE/Engineering/Emergency Reflector. Locally in Denver we link in and use the WØKU repeater on 449.625, the pl is 141.3. This is our "Flagship Station" WØKU is an open IRLP machine, and IRLP node 9615 is the "SBE Emergency and Broadcast Engineering repeater. We are also on the air EVERY Monday night with the regular Broadcast Engineering Hamnet in the same manner.
When the net is connected we are also linked into WA2CBS New York.
To find an IRLP node in your area you can go to the http://www.irlp.net/ website, click on the "Node Info" on the left, then click on the "List of nodes and frequencies" in the middle of the page. In a moment a full list of node numbers, cities, countries and the like will appear and do a page search for you city. When the node is highlighted click on the node number and that repeater information will appear, usually with contact information of the trustee/repeater owner. When you have done this and are able to access your node (usually at 4 digit code on the local repeater unless it is a closed club system), you will want to connect to the SBE Engineering/Emergency node #9615. .
We are also linked into the IRLP 9615 Reflector via ECHOLINK <http://www.echolink.org/>. You can down load the software, validate it with your callsign, and join us whether or not you have a radio or IRLP link close by. When you get on Echolink look up either *SBE* or node 96150. This is an exciting new way to connect to us via your PC!
ALL hams, IT, and broadcast engineers are WELCOME and encouraged to attend the net.
