Dave Cameron-VE7LTD IRLP Inventor Wins Prestigious Technical Excellence Award
Hello to all….
Its with great pleasure to let folks on the VoIP-WXNet list know that Dave Cameron-VE7LTD, Inventor of IRLP has won the prestigious Technical Excellence Award as sponsored by the Dayton Amateur Radio Association. This will be given at the Dayton Hamvention. A link to the article appears below and please note that Dave’s mention of his award is halfway down the article:
IRLP has transformed Amateur Radio and VHF/UHF communications into something that interoperates with the Internet. Along with the gateway technology that allows IRLP reflectors to interface with EchoLink conference servers and with the technology to allow for nodes to be “Echo-IRLP” meaning a node that can do either EchoLink or IRLP connections, these are powerful tools that have been very useful in Emergency Communications for this VoIP Hurricane Net and is being utilized on a local/regional basis around the US and the globe for Emergency Communications. This technology has also opened a new world of fun for VHF/UHF Ham Operators enabling them to talk far greater distances than they could in the past.
Congratulations to Dave on this well deserved award for a mode of operation that has provided greater fun to the Amateur community and a tremendous public service for Emergency Communications.
