There are numerous repeaters all over that link to the IRLP system. You just have to ask around your area or try scanning during net hours.

The other way you can communicate with these nets is with Echolink.

You need to be registered with them in order to use the program but once registered, you can use the program on your computer (with a mic), tablet or smart phone.

First of all welcome to the wonderful world of Amateur Radio or nicknamed Ham Radio

There are so many ways to enjoy this hobby

We hope this information will assist you in getting more enjoyment out of your toys.

Lets start by talking about getting registered so the rest of the Ham world can find out about you.

Click the link on the left to go to QRZ.com

You will see a box at the top to enter any call sign. Type your own call sign and touch enter.

You will be taken to the QRZ page that already has you listed from the FCC database.
However you will see this information asking you to log in.

Click the Login link and you will get a request to log in. If you have never logged in, you need to register.

Just click the link in the "Don't have...." line and follow instructions

Once you are registered, you can edit your page and add information about yourself.

You can add pictures, e-mail address and a bio.

You can see sample pages by entering any valid ham call sign. Try mine (KG7KA) if you wish.

I won't go into detail here about adding info to your page. There are help files available on the QRZ page.

To begin editing your page hover your mouse pointer over your call sign on the right.

Then click the Edit link and you are set to begin editing. There are help files there and by searching the web for help using QRZ.

Now start making contacts and have FUN.

You can also use QRZ for your log book.

When you enter a call sign you get this at first

Notice you can see their e-mail if you hover over the E-mail link.

You can also log a contact with them

You can see detail about them- I'll leave that for you to explore except for one area I really like- the "Show Map"

These are all public records so I am not revealing anything that is private.

All about repeaters

To find a list of repeaters in any specific area, check these resources:

Repeater Book .com
To look in a specific area look for the link "Quick Search North America". Then go to the area you want & get a list. You can look by town, county & other criteria.

NARRI web site has a list of the NARRI repeaters.

The WIN System has a list of repeaters that carry the WIN system.

On the IRLP.net site there is a list if active nodes. Go to the "Active Node Status" link on the left. Here you can get a list of all active nodes or look by zip code.

On Echolink you can see the active links without being a member. Click the "Link Status" link.
You can search by city or grid square. I tried Pahrump & got no response but using my grid square got me 30 responses.
If you don't know about grid squares, here is some information about them:
ARRL has a simple explanation at this site and a more detailed one here
If you are a licensed ham go to your QRZ page and your grid square is listed in the Detail tab.

There are many lists of repeaters available. Here are a few of them:
