EchoLink

EchoLink® software allows licensed Amateur Radio stations to communicate with one another over the Internet, using streaming-audio technology.  The program allows worldwide connections to be made between stations, or from computer to station, greatly enhancing Amateur Radio's communications capabilities.  There are more than 200,000 validated users worldwide — in 151 of the world's 193 nations — with about 5,200 online at any given time.

Echolinks webiste is here - where further information and the program maybe found and downloaded.

If you've never used Echolink before then theres a rather nice "Tour" of how it all works here

Scout Activity tends to take place on the JOTA-365 Conference, kindly run by Alan VE6DE.
