Echolink

The „Echolink“ module allows connection to other Echolink stations via the Internet and is used to connect to other Echolink stations. To establish a connection simply enter the node number of the station followed by a hash (#). To disconnect again, send a single hash (#).to exit the Echolink module, press # again.there are a number of subcommands that can be used within the Echolink module.
1# – Shows all connected stations
2# – Outputs the local Echolink node number
31# – Connects to a randomly selected link or repeater
32# – Connects to a random conference
4# – Reconnects to the station that was last disconnected
50# – Disable RX mode only
51# – Enable RX mode only
The „Connect by Callsign“ function allows you to connect to a station whose node number is not known. The callsigns are mapped to digits using the following method:ABC=2, DEF=3, GHI=4, JKL=5, MNO=6, PQRS=7, TUV=8, WXYZ=9. It is the same image as most phones.

Letters are mapped to the corresponding characters and these correspond to the corresponding numbers. All other characters are assigned to the digit 1. A search command begins with an asterisk, followed by the callsign code. So if you are looking for the callsign SM3SVX-L send „*76378915#“;

Since the codes are not unique, you will be offered a list of stations found that correspond to the pattern you are looking for and from which you can choose. The star sign corresponds to a kind of joker, i.e. any character. For example, if you are looking for all stations with the character string „SM3″“, just send „*763*#“.

Description

NAME
Name of the module
ID
The unique ID under which the module is activated
TIMEOUT
time in seconds, after which the module is deactivated
ALLOW_IP
Network address from which a lekaler Connect is allowed, e.g. ALLOW_IP=192.168.0.0/24
DROP_INCOMING
Regex syntax, EchoLink stations whose connect requests are ignored (no information to the remote station)
REJECT_INCOMING
Regex syntax, EchoLink stations whose connect requests are rejected (information to the remote station)
ACCEPT_INCOMING
Regex syntax, EchoLink stations whose connect requests are accepted.
ACCEPT_OUTGOING
Regex syntax, if defined, will only be established to those stations that match the Regex definition
REJECT_OUTGOING
Regex syntax, if defined, will prevent (outgoing) connection establishment.
REJECT_CONF
If =1, then all incoming connections whose names contain CONF at the end will be rejected. The requesting station receives information that the connection will not be established. All stations in conference mode are blocked. If a station connects to a conference after the connection to its own station has already been established, the connection to this station is interrupted (disconnected).
CHECK_NR_CONNECTS
If a station is connected too often, the number of attempts can be limited, a new connection attempt is then rejected. Example CHECK_NR_CONNECTS=3,300,120If a station establishes a connection to its own station 3 times within 300 seconds, this station is blocked for 120 minutes
SERVERS
separated list of Echolink servers. If the connection to the first one is disconnected, the next EchoLink server is automatically connected:SERVERS=europe.echolink.org asia.echolink.org
CALLSIGN
The callsign under which the own node works (-L = Link, -R = Repeater), e.g. CALLSIGN=DB0ABC-R
PASSWORD
The password for logging in to the EchoLink directory service in plaintext(!)
SYSOPNAME
The name of the Sysops
USE_GSM_ONLY
On systems with weak CPU it may be useful to prevent the automatic codec switching (from GSM to SPEEX) which is done by default between SvxLink nodes. SPEEX requires a higher computing power, which may lead to interrupted audio output on weak systems.
LOCATION
The name of the city/village where the link or repeater is located, max. 27 characters
MAX_QSOS
The maximum number of concurrent connections
MAX_CONNECTIONS
If more stations than MAX_QSOS establish a connection, the connection is only accepted to inform the other side that the connection request is rejected due to too high a number of QSO subscribers. If there are more requests than defined in MAX_CONNECTIONS, the requests will be ignored.
PROXY_SERVER
If set, the connection to the configured EchoLink proxy server will be established. The password for the EchoLink proxy server
PROXY_PORT
The network port via which the proxy server is reached.
BIND_IP
With this configuration variable the EchoLink UDP socket can be bound to a special IP address / interface. This configuration can be useful if the computer has several network interfaces.Example: BIND_IP=192.168.0.10
AUTOCON_ECHOLINK_ID
Configure here an EchoLink node number of the EchoLink node to which a connection is to be established automatically.
AUTOCON_TIME
Time in seconds between two connection attempts to the desired EchoLink-Node
LINK_IDLE_TIMEOUT
time, after which the connection to the remote station is terminated, if no activity can be detected.
DESCRIPTION
A longer description, which provides the remote station with information about its own station, e.g. CTCSS, antenna, TRX, …
