IRLP Access to FM38

Author: John Flanagan - Published 2006-01-15 16:59 - (3320 Reads)
Although FM38 is an IRLP connected system (#4606), our IRLP system is not publicly controllable for outbound connections and is passcode protected.

We are normally “nailed up” to the Indiana REF9200 channel 4. This full-time link is for the time being used to integrate the Alden, North Praire and Cambridge systems into our network.

If you wish to access FM38 via IRLP inbound, simply connect to #9204.
