EchoLink® software allows licensed Amateur Radio stations to communicate with one another over the Internet, using streaming-audio technology.  The program allows worldwide connections to be made between stations, or from computer to station, greatly enhancing Amateur Radio's communications capabilities.  There are more than 200,000 validated users worldwide — in 162 of the world's 193 nations — with about 5,000 online at any given time.

What can you do with EchoLink?


EchoLink allows licensed Amateur Radio stations to connect to one another over the Internet. You can use EchoLink to connect your station (or your computer) over the Internet to other amateurs using the same software, and carry on a voice QSO. This greatly enhances the range and utility of mobile and portable VHF/UHF-FM stations, and also allows computer-equipped hams to access distant repeaters directly.

You can access EchoLink either with a radio or a computer. If you are in range of an FM repeater or simplex station equipped with EchoLink, you can use DTMF commands from your radio to access the EchoLink network. If you are a licensed amateur with an Internet-connected PC, you can access EchoLink stations directly from your PC.

  Club Procedures for Using EchoLink®  
  EchoLink® and Windows 7, and Windows Vista

EchoLink has been tested for compatibility with all versions of Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Vista, the newest editions of the Windows operating system. If you are running EchoLink on Windows 7 or Vista, please be sure you have installed the latest version of EchoLink (2.0 or above), and also note the following:


Windows 7 and Windows Vista have a built-in firewall, which is enabled by default. When it's enabled, it generally blocks any software on your computer from being reachable from the Internet. Since EchoLink relies on being reachable from the Internet, it will also prevent EchoLink from working, unless a special "exception" is added for EchoLink.
