An abbreviated guide for use of the W5LEX IRLP/Echolink node:

IRLP

ID with your callsign

Key mic and using your keypad, slowly enter # (pound sign), followed by the IRLP number of the node you wish to connect with.

ECHOLINK

ID with your callsign

Key mic and using your keypad, slowly enter * (star), followed by the Echolink node number that you wish to connect with.

BOTH MODES

When successfully connected to the desired node, you should hear an announcement from that site. Before speaking, listen to hear if there are already users on the node.  Because of system latency on both IRLP and Echolink modes, wait several seconds after keying your mic before speaking (to prevent clipping the first words of your transmission).  Do this on each voice transmission. It is also suggested to allow 3 to 5 seconds between the end of the other stations transmission before beginning yours.

DISCONNECTING  (“ IMPORTANT “)

ID with your callsign.  Using your keypad, slowly enter 7 3 .   You should hear an announcement from the node confirming disconnect.
