Echolink – VOIP Radio Linking
EchoLink® is a Windows software application which allows licensed Amateur Radio stations to communicate with one another over the Internet, using streaming-audio technology. The program allows worldwide connections to be made between stations, or from computer to station, greatly enhancing Amateur Radio’s communications capabilities. There are more than 200,000 validated users worldwide — in 151 of the world’s 193 nations — with about 5,200 online at any given time.
SARA is affiliated with the Courage Handiham System. The Handihams have two HF transceivers which are remotely accessible by Echolink. The station call signs are WØZSW and WØEQO. Through the use of Echolink, you can listen to amateur conversations on the High Frequency bands by entering the frequency into the application. The station at WØZSW covers all HF bands from 160 – 10 meters. WØEQO covers all HF bands from 80 – 10 meters.
