Have had some great qso's through an Echolink repeater with my Yaesu VX-8E but it's not always active, in fact it and 6m, 2m & 70cm's has been a bit dead lately. I have a ragchew with a ham friend on 10m every weekend and am taking the handie to the mainland tomorrow in the hope of doing APRS and some qso's. Anyway, I've now been validated and have set-up Echolink on my laptop so I can get some contacts when the radios are dead. It opens up a way of worldwide amateur radio coverage talking to hams on foot, mobile and base.
