NEW ENGLAND
IRLP 9120 <--> ECHOLINK 9120
*NEW-ENG*

 

OVERVIEW

      The "New England" channel of the New England Reflector is the first of three integrated gateways.  It is the main channel of the reflector and digitally bridges together IRLP and EchoLink.  Users connecting to this gateway from either VoIP network are allowed to interconnect with each other.  The node number is identical and accessible on both the networks of IRLP and EchoLink as 9120.  It can be found on EchoLink clients as conference *NEW-ENG*.  This is a dedicated gateway for general QSO in the six New England states.

      This gateway is configured to have transcoding enabled, meaning audio between users on IRLP and EchoLink and visa versa are re-encoded.  The audio codec for users connecting via IRLP is UNCOMP (uncompressed), while EchoLink is GSM.  The purpose of this configuration is to have the added benefit of exceptional audio quality between IRLP nodes when connecting to the gateway via IRLP (preferred).

More details are provided below.

USAGE

      This gateway provides an open channel for any and all nodes to connect for the purpose of ragchewing.  Indvidual nodes are allowed to connect and park here for extended periods.  This is a free and open resource for all members of the amateur community.

      Mostly all drills, emergency communications and scheduled nets are held on 9123 and 9127 respectively in order to keep the New England gateway free for general QSO at all times.  When scheduling conflicts occur however, this gateway does function as a backup.
