Operating Guidelines

 

Good Amateur operating practices are always encouraged. Whenever you access the Carolina 440 UHF Link System please remember to pause a moment between transmissions to allow others to join your conversation or to pass Emergency Traffic. This practice is particularly important when accessing other repeater systems via the IRLP since some additional "turnaround" time is frequently required.


Try not to use 11 meter lingo when talking on the system and speak normally.

Some examples:
