LHS Episode #223: HippoPOTAmus

Welcome to Episode 223 of Linux in the Ham Shack. We're excited about Hamvention 2018 in just 24 short days. Please note that we will not be recording on Monday, April 30th. We will be recording with a special guest on Thursday, May 3rd. In this episode, we talk about getting some exercise and playing ham radio on islands, mountaintops and more. We also discuss MumbleRF, Code.gov, ham radio and wi-fi, ffmpeg, changes at Ubuntu, IRLP and much more. Thank you for listening and please donate to our Hamvention 2018 fund if you're able. See you in Xenia!

    You can run echolink on IRLP. Get IRLP working first. Then install echoirlp on it. That will give you the ability to make IRLP or echolink connections. You won’t be able to connect to both IRLP and echolink at the same time.
    Also, if you are wanting to use IRLP in a portable operation, it does require port forwarding in order to work.
    Allstar link will allow outgoing connections but not incoming connections without any port forwarding.
