Map of the transmit
                  coverage area of the '76 repeater
This map shows the transmit coverage of the '76 repeater.
- Red areas are likely to provide good HT coverage - even with a rubber duck antenna.
- Yellow areas are likely to provide solid mobile coverage and good HT coverage in a good location (e.g. not indoors, or with an outside antenna)
- Green and Cyan areas should be easily accessible using mobile or home stations with modest outdoor antennas.
- In Light Blue and Dark Blue areas coverage will be spotty and require a good outside mobile or home antenna - even a beam..
- Coverage in un-colored areas is likely to be spotty or nonexistent.

UARC's EchoIRLP Node is online and available for use!

IRLP Node #3352
Echolink Node #703269

Important note:

While anyone may "Dial In" to this node, only UARC members will be given the "prefix code" that will allow them to "Dial Out" into the IRLP or Echolink network.

If you are a UARC member and do not have the access code, it may be found in the printed edition of the UARC Microvolt on the inside front cover, or you may ask a member of the UARC Board.

If you are an out-of-town guest or not a member of UARC, you are welcome to use the node on an occasional basis with the assistance of a UARC member.

This node operates on UARC's 146.76 repeater on Lake Mountain, west of Orem, Utah.  From this site, this repeater covers Utah County, most of Salt Lake County, Cedar Valley, southern portions of Tooele valley, and up into parts of Weber and Davis Counties.

For the procedure for using this node, go to the UARC IRLP Node User's Guide page.  There is also the UARC IRLP/Echolink Node Quick Reference - a one-page sheet showing the necessary commands - in both HTML (web page) and PDF format (best for printing).

About the UARC IRLP/Echolink Node:

Beware 3rd party agreement limitations!

Although it may seem strange to some, there are many countries in the world that do not have an agreement with the U.S. that allows 3rd party traffic to be passed.

What does this mean?

In many cases, it is not legal for you to pass on any message to/from a non-ham as a result of the QSO - whether that person (or persons) is in your shack, available via telephone, or even if you take a message and deliver it later.  While something as simple as a "Hello" probably won't get anyone into trouble, anything more than this may start to raise eyebrows.

Why is this?  In many countries, the radio regulation authority is (or was, in the past) also the same one that is responsible for regulating telephone and the post office - and using amateur radio to pass traffic that could conceivably take business away from these other services is frowned upon.  In other cases, some governments simply frown on citizens engaging in anything other than routine amateur-radio communications.

While these sorts of regulations are slowly being relaxed, many countries still prohibit such third-party communications and while you may not get into trouble for doing it, the ham on the other end may!

For more information on third-party communications, see the ARRL International 3rd Party Traffic page.

A few nodes and reflectors of note:
  • 3270 - Sinbad System.  This node is often tied into this system in South/Eastern Utah.
  • 3574 - Rainbow Canyons ARC, Cedar City, UT.  This node can be tied into the Intermountain Intertie.
  • 3925 - Associated with the Bridgerland Amateur Radio Club in Logan.
  • 5620 - This is the WA7GIE system on UHF:  It is almost always connected to the Western Reflector.
  • 9070 - The Alaskan Reflector.  Various Alaskan nodes are connected here:  Often connected to the Western Reflector.
  • 9250 - The Western Reflector.  Based out of Las Vegas, many western U.S. and Canadian nodes are connected to this system as well as other across the globe.
  • 9350 - Los Angeles hub reflector.  California/Los Angeles nodes often connect here.
A "Node" is an IRLP-equipped station:  Two nodes may connect to each other, but no-one else can connect to either one.  A "Reflector" is like a party line:  Several nodes can connect to a reflector and talk with each other.
