The UHF repeaters are used for local SKYWARN Administration and if the need arises for any emergencies related to SKYWARN and ARES. 
The Carolina 440 UHF Link System is designated for Local and Coastal SKYWARN Administration.  The Coastal Link System could be activated if the need arises during severe weather to exchange useful information from the coastal areas surrounding Wilmington, Castle Hayne, Holly Ridge and Topsail Island to the National Weather Service offices including passing information to the NWS here in Raleigh, N.C.  

The IRLP and EchoLink System provides additional linking capabilities for other agencies such as the National Hurricane Center in Miami, FL. during severe weather across the Nation.  The KD4RAA, 146.775 VHF System is also a dedicated system that is used for the VoIP Skywarn Net activities with the Raleigh Reflector 921. The VoIP Weather Net  site  can be viewed at:  http://www.voipwx.net 

On October 3, 2002 Hurricane Lili was the first IRLP - Hurricane/Skywarn net. using our 
East Coast Reflector 9210
 in Raleigh, N.C.

Public Codes and Auto patch

Public Codes and the Emergency * 911 auto patch on the UHF system is available on the full time Link through all of the participating repeaters.  Other features include a Private Auto Patch and other Private functions by members only.  The system is an open repeater system for use at anytime by any licensed amateur and the auto patch can be used with the assistance of a control operator if one would like to make a call.  The Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Clayton, Coats and Wendell area repeaters can be used for the local phone patch.  Emergency auto patch can be used from any repeater.  We use 100 Hz PL because of occasional interference and to make use of linking functions in the systems engineering. If you are from another area and desire to use the IRLP-VoIP linking while in its coverage area, feel free to contact a Control Operator while here or e-mail in advance to K4JDR  to assist you.

          Linking Plans for Interoperable Communications

 

(Voice Interoperability System for Amateur Radio)

The 441.725+ 100 PL repeater is the Backbone Hub for the UHF Link System, IRLP 4270 and EchoLink 42704, its  controller is what supports the auto patch and other advanced functions for the Carolina 440 Raleigh Link System.  This system is what we call our Voice Interoperability System for Amateur Radio, VISAR©We have provided a list of the "Repeaters on the Link" with their geographical location to guide you on what repeater would be best for you, based on your location.   The future plans are to link several more repeaters by the RF Link and use the Voice Over IP Link system to further extend repeaters that are out of the RF Coverage areas.  There are three systems that can be connected all together, the Coastal Link System repeater is in Clinton and can be linked on demand and the Down East Link System repeater is located in Kinston and usually is connected to the Coastal System.  See the repeater list for the frequencies that are on the systems.  For further info on VISAR© go to this URL:  http://www.carolina440.net/VISAR.htm      

Experimentation on other UHF linking possibilities will take place and it is subject to change.  We are going to try and cover as much as we can to the Raleigh backbone hub.  The W4SNA Winston Salem Link System is linked through our VoIP on Reflector 921 Channel 0 every day at 0800 hrs to 2200 hrs except for the Good Morning net at 1000 hrs for approximately 1 hour Monday thru Saturday, and Friday nights during a net at 2130 hrs. The Charlotte Metrolina areas Hospital Emergency Amateur Radio System (NC HEARS) is also under construction and will have the ability to link as well using RF and VoIP.  To see more on the NC HEARS go to the web at: www.nchears.org  The Outer Banks Repeaters will also be part of the Voice Over IP Links.
