Bonner County Linked Repeater System


BCARC with the cooperation of several independent repeater owners have linked their systems together to create a common expanded coverage area around Bonner County. Our goal is to build a county wide amateur communications system to support the communities through out Bonner County in a natural disaster or other emergency situation and that can be accessed with low power radios, such as a 5 watt handheld, from anywhere in the county. These are the current locations in the linked system:

Please allow 2 seconds when keying the mic to allow "ALL" repeaters that are linked to start before talking or listeners will not hear the first part of what you say.
   The K7JEP Sagle VHF repeater - Receive: 146.780MHz (minus offset) Transmit: 146.180MHz/100.0Hz tone.
   The K7JEP HooDoo Mtn VHF repeater - Receive: 145.490MHz (minus offset) Transmit: 144.890MHz/136.5Hz tone.
   The K7JEP HooDoo Mtn UHF repeater - Receive: 443.375MHz (plus offset) Transmit: 448.375MHz/136.5Hz tone.
   The K7JEP Priest River VHF simplex base - Receive/Transmit: 144.910MHz/100.0Hz tone.
In the event of an Emergency, we will also use 145.600 simplex with no tones.

We wish to thank the individual repeater owners for their cooperation with linking! Coverage locations may change as new agreements are made with individual repeater owners.

 

 


Linked Repeater Systems: AllStar - Echolink - IRLP

 

 

Use good courtesy practices:


   Use of any of these linked systems is done by DTMF control codes using your microphone key pad. Each system has a common set of commands but each individual control operator has the right to customize these codes for their node.
   Before using any linked system, please check with the local nodes control operator for any special instructions, requirements and to get a list of the DTMF command codes specific to that node.    When using these control commands please be sure to give your callsign either before or after sending the DTMF code. Please no un-id'd kerchunking!
   When connecting to another node it is a general courtesy to give your callsign after you hear the connection confirmation by the repeater so users on the node being connected to know who just joined them. If you imediately hear a conversation in progress when connected, please wait until the conversation is done before giving your callsign.
   When connecting to another node or hub to make a contact with a friend or to listen to a net, it is a courtesy to users of both nodes to disconnect the link when you are done and not leave the connection up.
   Remember courtesy is everything. Many hubs will have from a few connections to a few dozen up to a few hundred connections at any time. That is a lot of people listening.
   Also keep in mind the time differences of the distant areas you might connect to. Even though it might only be late afternoon where you are, it might be 2 a.m. where that distant node is.
   I have listed a few nodes in the repeater list tables below. Please check the individual node lists for AllStar, Echolink and IRLP as the active nodes change frequently.

AllStar Link


AllStar Link is an amateur radio voice over internet protocol linking system that can be accessed through a repeater or through the AllStar Link web site. AllStar Link Network is the newest of the 3 major linked systems and is growing by leaps and bounds. More information about the AllStar Link system is available by CLICK HERE.

A list of currently active AllStar Link nodes is available by CLICK HERE. Clicking on a node link on that page will display that nodes statistics including who they are connected to at that time.


Some Common AllStar DTMF Commands:
All command DTMF code sequences begin with the asterisk "*" character.
*70     Status of which nodes are connected to the local node.
*3(node #)     Connect to node #.
*1(node #)     Disconnect from node #.
*81(node #)     Play node system time.

Echolink


Echolink is an amateur radio voice over internet protocol linking system that can be accessed through a repeater or on your smart phone or home computer with a microphone. More information about the Echolink system is available by CLICK HERE.

A list of currently active Echolink nodes is available by CLICK HERE.

To get the current status of Echolink nodes by CLICK HERE.

 

IRLP


IRLP is an amateur radio voice over internet protocol linking system that can be accessed only through a repeater. IRLP is not available using a smart phone or computer directly through the internet. More information about the IRLP system is available by CLICK HERE.

A list of currently active IRLP nodes is available by CLICK HERE.
