Branson Repeaters

Missouri Ozarks Amateur (Ham) Radio

EchoLink Node: 443550 or KJ6TQ-R

EchoLink is a fun and easy way for hams to keep in touch over long distances using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology.  Both the KJ6TQ 1.25 meter and 70 cm repeaters are connected to EchoLink full time.
The node number is: 443550 and the node ID is: KJ6TQ-R.

Hams who visit Branson are welcome to use our repeater’s EchoLink node to connect back to their hometown repeater as long as they have permission from their hometown repeater trustee to connect in.  DTMF tones are passed from the RF side of our repeater into the EchoLink server.

To connect to your hometown repeater’s EchoLink from one of our repeaters, you will need to know the numerical node ID for this other repeater.  Simply key up on either our 1.25 meter or 70 cm repeater (they’re always linked to one another), identify yourself, and then enter just the numbers of the node to which you’re trying to connect.

For example, while visiting Branson, to connect to node 9999 (The EchoLink Test Node):
1) Key up on either our 1.25 meter or 70 cm repeater and Identify Yourself.
2) While transmitting, enter the numbers: 9 9 9 9 on your DTMF keypad.
3) Unkey.  (You should now be connected to the EchoLink Test node)
4) You should hear the computer voice confirm the node to which you connected.  If you don’t hear the confirmation, then your DTMF tones did not work.  Try again.
5) Key up and Identify Yourself.

To Disconnect our EchoLink node from the node to which you previously connected:
1) Key up on either our 1.25 meter or 70 cm repeater and Identify Yourself.
2) While transmitting, enter the # on your DTMF keypad.  (Our node should now disconnect)
3) Unkey.  (You’re should now be disconnected from the EchoLink node to which you previously connected)
4) You should hear the computer voice say, “Disconnected”.  If you don’t hear this confirmation, then your DTMF tones did not work.  Try again.
5) Key up and Identify Yourself.
