Good afternoon,

I would like to discuss adding the ARRL news letter to the repeater once a week when others might be able to listen to it. Perhaps a friday afternoon around 6 or 7 PM with a 15 minute link up time as news is less than 15 minutes with breaks every 90 seconds so repeater does not time out.

This is possible on the node now as it can  link to experimental nodes due to mod in irlp/environment those that know the node it is clearly labeled in the file. I have already added a script that works also. The only thing needed is agreement if we want this and add cron to link and disconnect at agreed times.  

Those that like we can have a linkup to listen to what this cast has for information and content.

All that is needed to disconnect is #73 DTMF to the repeater for priority use, but also see information on Groups on how to use IRLP and EchoLink on the repeater. Let me know if updates are needed to this and will do.

This is a link to the newsletter for more info and listen online. 

Looking for feedback.

Hi all,

I have been messing around with my node after some discussions on IRLP groups.

I found a way to modify the custom environment to allow experimental nodes. You might ask , long story short the pob cast that is online can be accessed over the repeater with some changes in the IRLP node. The broadcast is about 10-15 minutes long and drops every 90 seconds to not lock up the repeater and can be stopped via DTMF #73 at any time.

The only other repeater that seems to do the information is in Vancouver WA.

From what I have tried on my node this is possible on the Cougar repeater with slight mod of Environment file and some cron changes for auto access we could have this come up perhaps in the afternoon after 2pm or latest 6 pm so some could get this information? I think this could gather some interest of what is going on in the ARRL news.

Thoughts or suggestions as this is club repeater and node. Times can also be multiple per day for more audience but not disturb nets.
