Q. How do I use the Echolink facility? A. The DTMF commands shown on the index page are a good start, check the frequency is not in use, then key your microphone and send a command. The system will acknowledge your commands. Q. How do I check my own audio? A. Connect to the Echolink Test Server by sending the DTMF command 9999 (please disconnect when you are finished). Q. Can I join an existing QSO? A. Of course, break in as you usually would, giving your Callsign. Bear in mind that there will be a slight delay because of the magic of the internet (stations should leave an additional pause between overs) Q. Why are some stations louder than others. A. This is down to the audio settings of their own set up or the Link/Repeater they are working through Q. There are remote stations connected and I want to connect elsewhere, can I disconnect them? A. Yes, if you are sure there are no RF stations using MB7IWW, wait for a pause and send the # command. Q. Sometimes the carrier drops when connected stations are talking? A. MB7IWW and Echolink uses VOX, this isn’t always ideal, if a station pauses when speaking the carrier will drop momentarily. I am looking to improve this. Q. I see a command for HubNet, what is it? A. HubNet is a collaboration of lots of different links, from all kinds of platforms and modes, you can read about it HERE Q. Sometimes I can only hear one side of a QSO when connected to a remote Echolink station, why is that? A. In the same way you may only hear one side of any simplex QSO, Echolink is the same when connected to a Simplex node.
