The following passive features are enabled;
- APRS node broadcast – The status and location of the IRLP node is broadcast every hour and at the beginning and end of every connection via an APRS object labelled “IRLP-6110”. The object icon is a circle containing the status of the node, I for idle, C for connected, B for busy. By looking at your APRS display you can instantly see the status of the node and if it is connected, by looking at the object information you can see who it is connected to.
More information on node 6110 may be found on it’s own page.
|6336||146.725 Isaacs Ridge||Node is currently non-operational.||Note: 91.5 Hz CTCSS tone required for access is presently turned off.|
