We reported recently on the IRLP HAMnet, which lets broadcast engineers and amateurs contact one another, share information and discuss broadcasting techniques.

Jack Roland, chief engineer for Entercom Radio in Denver, developed the idea of using the IRLP as a way to get SBE members together. Here’s an update to the service: The IRLP HAMnet has joined the “HF” SBE HAMnet as an official function of the Society of Broadcast Engineers.

The SBE IRLP HAMnet will be based in Denver using the WA2YZT UHF/VHF repeater system, IRLP node #3286, on the first and third Saturdays of each month at 11 a.m., U.S. Mountain Time.

Here’s how you can participate: The SBE IRLP HAMnet control station, either KE0VH, Jack Roland or WA2YZT, Paul Deeths (net controls), connects to the local Denver Reflector IRLP link on the local Denver WA2YZT repeater. Then, identify the local IRLP repeater in your area and, unless it is a closed club repeater, tone in #9874. This will connect you to the Denver Reflector and the SBE IRLP HAMnet.
