NoAm - Sorry you had packet trouble - it sounded so good Thursday - hope it gets sorted out.

Nacho - info that may be helpful... Echolink U-Node is also accessible as IRLP 9669. It was great to finally be able to join the net this time - My home internet drops packets down-link much worse than NoAm's uplink was last net, being satellite based. So - the logical thing to do was to use an Echolink capable repeater - first I had to find one that would connect to a conference bridge (locked out on the 2m repeaters around here). However, when I tried to connect to U-Node (by dtmf the echolink password and the U-Node node number) - the repeater would announce connecting to "U N O D E" - a pause and "An error has occured, connection timed out, link disconnected!". Fortunately NoAm also found the IRLP reflector number, when I used that it connected and worked great. And worked great for the net Sunday.
Best of luck.
