new book! for a complete introduction to internet linking, a book is now available from the arrl entitled voip: internet linking for radio amateurs.
the book contains plenty of detailed information about echolink and other voip systems, and answers many of the most frequently-asked questions about internet linking.
it's also a great way to help support echolink, since a portion of the author's proceeds from the book go directly to the costs of operating the echolink system.
for details, please see: http://www.arrl.org/catalog/?item=9264
enjoy the software!
