The GCARS 2m repeater (147.120 Mhz, pl tone 100hz) is now linked to the internet via the Echolink system. The repeater is hosted on Echolink as KG4ZJF-R (node 671596). You can access and talk to people via the GCARS 2m repeater by using a smart phone, a computer, an ipad, a tablet or any other internet linked device which has the Echolink software installed. Echolink is a FREE download on all platforms and operating systems. You now can talk to your ham friends in and around Gaston County without the need of any other amateur radio related equipment other than an Echolink equipped device. And you can now access the N4GAS repeater from anywhere in the world via the internet!! We are working towards enabling 2m RF users to link the repeater through Echolink, using DTMF tones, to other Echolink stations around the world. We hope to have that capability soon.
