The Hardware

The Node is now a VE7LTD (Dave Cameron) completely self contained embedded IRLP/Echolink Node running Debian Wheezy.

The Radio is a Yaesu FT-897 on the IRLP frequency of 146.750 MHz running 5 watts.

The Antenna is a Diamond 510.

The transceiver is internally fan cooled.

The PC is on a UPS which will run the system for about 30 mins in the event of a power failure.

A special board interfaces the Radio with the PC.

The Software

The software is Debian Wheezy with the latest version of the IRLP software.

The various scripts are written and modified by Amateurs from around the World.


The following diagram shows how Echolink works.
