These days it's not unusual to find an EchoLink interface on local VHF and UHF repeaters worldwide. For the uninitiated, EchoLink is a software package that combines the best of Amateur Radio and the Internet. The man behind EchoLink is Jonathan Taylor/K1RFD. Jonathan talked about "combining the old with the new" in a 2004 Dayton Hamvention talk. [2005 12M] Ok, this presentation is a bit dated, going back 14 years. This is just a crass way of announcing that the RAIN archives now goes back to the beginning of 2004, more than 2 years further back than ever before. Check out the extended archives on therainreport.com. The RAIN Report is copyright 1990-2018 RAIN, all rights ARE reserved. This hamcast generally updates Saturday morning on therainreport.com; and Saturday evenings on shortwave station WTWW from Lebanon, TN around 9:00 PM CDT on 5085 kHZ. KEEP ON HAMMING!
