W9PCi Repeater IRLP REFLECTOR User Requirements
NOTE: **** NO ACCESS CODE IS REQUIRES AS OF Jan 2013 ****
Should it become necessary to implement an access code in the future, please use your pre-assigned code or request a code by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once again for 2012 it is necessary to implement “special” access codes for IRLP "Reflector" use on W9PCi repeater 147.240PL100. Please send an email requesting your access code. The access code is yours and may not be given to anyone. This requirement applies to IRLP Node 3383.
You may permit licensed HAM operators, of your choice, to access an IRLP REFLECTOR but you must bring up the REFLECTOR, monitor REFLECTOR use and bring REFLECTOR down when the user you are monitoring finishes. It is your responsibility to be sure that operators adhere to good operator practice and, above all, be courteous and helpful.
You are also responsible for adherence to REFLECTOR owner procedures.
It is your responsibility to monitor all transmissions and to terminate IRLP REFLECTOR use if you determine misuse. If it becomes necessary to terminate use of the IRLP REFLECTOR connection, please send an email explaining the reason. Your email is voluntary and not required but may be helpful to better serve users of the repeaters.
Note: ***** THE USE OF A CODE IS ONLY NEEDED FOR CONNECTION TO A non-Echo REFLECTOR *****
All other IRLP Connections (for example, any "node to node" connection and any "ECHO" Reflector), do not use a code; simply ID, ask if the repeater is in use by anyone and if not, enter the 4 digits of the IRLP Node or "ECHO" Reflector you are calling. Remember to ID at proper intervals and to bring down the IRLP connection when finished. It is always a good practice to provide a few seconds delay between transmissions to permit others to join in.
Most all repeater systems are listened to by young children, visiting operators, their spouses / partners and potential “new” amateur radio operators. Because of this, you are encouraged use of these systems and to promote the high standard of “esprit de corps”, technical discussions and conversations (rag-chewing) that are prized by most of the licensed amateur community.
Let’s all make 2013 a great year for Amateur Radio.
