Node 8144 Cape Town - South Africa

This is an open/public node, before using it please read the guidelines for its use. I run this node for personal use, but am happy for fellow licensed radio amateurs to freely make use of it. However if abuse occurs, I do reserve the right to restrict access or shut the node down.

What is IRLP?

The Internet Radio Linking Project (IRLP) links Radio Amateur Systems around the world via the Internet. IRLP uses Voice-over-IP (VOIP) and the Internet to link radio staions around the world.

The system uses a custom computer interface board and software running under Linux (CentOS).

IRLP runs a large network of dedicated servers and nodes, which offer the very best in global voice communications, by linking Amateur Radio stations with full dynamic range telephone quality sound.

These pages relate to the ZS1JEN node (8144), please consult the IRLP web site for general information.
