Repeater Network

VK3 ScoutNET

The VK3 ScoutNet is an ongoing project built by dedicated amateur radio operators involved with the SRESU. They have made the network available to assist amateur radio licensed Scouts and friends of Scouting to communicate via relatively simple amateur radio equipment across the Melbourne metropolitan area and beyond.

Please remember to leave a 2-3 second break between your overs and invite new operators to join your conversations.

Clicking on an IRLP node number where listed below will show you the current status on

Echolink Conference Server *SCOUT-VK*

VK3RAJ at Upwey is connected to Echolink conference server *SCOUT-VK*. You can connect to VK3RAJ via RF on Echolink-enabled repeaters by connecting to Echolink Node 556763.

When an EchoLink node is connected to an IRLP node, there can only be one connection, so while *SCOUT-VK* is connected to VK3RAJ-R, then no one else can connect to VK3RAJ-R via IRLP 6372, you have to connect to the *SCOUT-VK* conference in EchoLink.
