Notes and information page


The 145.41 repeater in Lakewood (103.5 hz), sports a IRLP node, number 3583. [K7EK]
This is an open node and all licensed amateurs are welcome. I just ask that you operate in accordance with current FCC regulations, be considerate to others, and use common sense, lest I be forced to limit access to a select few. 

Before using the system, please listen for some time to ascertain whether someone is already accessing a node. The importance of this cannot be stressed enough. 

Remember to leave a couple of seconds pause between transmissions

This is to allow other stations to disconnect etc.

This is extremely important when connected

to a busy IRLP node for example the winsys IRLP node # 9100!!

Echolink when this was installed we used the #node number for echolink connections

for IRLP we used the *node number.




To connect to a node, simply key your mic,

identify your station, and then transmit the node number

with your DTMF pad. When finished,

ID again, and transmit the DTMF code *73.

and #73 From Echolink.

Warn all Connected partys that they'll be disconnected as well.

This command disconnects all nodes from the node you were connected too.



The Tacoma Radio Club nets were also hosted

from the Repeater on 33rd street as Ted would set a string of code through

can be heard from the radio to the control device of the repeater which stopped the id's and

the constant reminders until after the nets, he had the timers set to

goto default settings like around 9-pm or 10-pm

Of which the repeater would resume it's normal use.

We often discussed the IRLP and Echolink additions to the repeater

Ted wanted these features added down the road, however he

did not get a chance to see this through.

However the repeater has a controler that sends code

of which tells it what to do. Ted was one of the programmers

I'm hoping to find tech. notes taken during our many chats

that might be of help..

This system was setup for both IRLP and Echolink

You could only use one or the other but NOT BOTH at the same time.

The Seattle Columbian Tower Repeater is also setup with same format.




To connect to Echolink Just ID your station and Press "#" then the node number for the echolink station.

On IRLP if Supported it's "*" and the node number


Remember always to listen first BEFORE You attempt anything in case the repeater is in use by another station.
