I had something that was bugging me. I am a new ham and am learning as fast as I can but I had a question about Echolink. I believe that its VoIP correct? If so than it requires an internet connection to use and you cannot use it offline. If the internet goes down than communication via Echolink goes down as well right?
Do we have nets on any of the HF frequencies? Do we practice on actual frequencies in case we need to remain in contact during an emergency?
I apologize in advance if this has been mentioned but after searching I did not find anything.
