Internet Radio Linking Project (IRLP) Information

General IRLP Information:
IRLP is a system to route amateur radio audio from FM transceivers over the Internet to any other node or reflector in the world.  Please visit the Internet Radio Linking Project web site for detailed information about IRLP.

To determine the current status of any IRLP node or reflector, visit:  http://status.irlp.net

The KBARA Linked Repeater System currently has two IRLP nodes:

IRLP Node Purpose
Internet Radio Linking Project Node #3638
Owner : Glen Ahlborn, K1RR
South Hill, Spokane, Washington
As of July 2013, this node is used as the Eastern end of a full time East-West audio link, allowing KBARA repeaters to participate in the Evergreen Intertie.  The Western end of the East-West link is node # 3636 located on Tiger Mountain near Seattle. Both nodes are connected to IRLP Reflector 9075 at all times.  

While it is technically possible to use this IRLP node to make outgoing IRLP connections to other nodes and reflectors, the E-W link would have to be turned off to do so.  Therefore, using this node to make outgoing connections is strongly discouraged.  Do so only if you know exactly what you are doing, and the KBARA Control Operators are aware that you will be making IRLP connections.  Always restore the E-W link to the condition you found it when you are done.  Instructions for using this IRLP node are no longer published on this web site.  Contact the KBARA Technical Director, John-W7OE, the node owner, Glen-K1RR, or one of the KBARA Control Operators for assistance if you think you need to use this node for purposes other than the E-W link.

Instead of initiating an outgoing IRLP connection on this node, invite your friends to connect their IRLP node to Reflector 9075.  You'll automatically hear them on the KBARA system when they sucessfully connect to Reflector 9075.
