Join YCARS on EchoLink

YCARS now has an EchoLink node running in the club shack. It is connected to a node radio which is set to the K4YTZ repeater in Rock Hill, SC.

So, if you’re out and about travelling and don’t have a radio with you or you are out of range of the K4YTZ repeater, you can still keep in touch with your YCARS friends back at home!

You’re welcome to connect to K4YTZ-L, node 376892.
