- EchoLink If you are a licensed radio amateur you can monitor communications in and out of the effected area here. If you have an Echolink account, use one of the reflector channels (VKEMCOMM, N5API, KC4QLP-C) and avoid the WX_Talk conference during the height of the storm, unless you are filing a report. The Interdictor gang is transcribing echolink traffic on the #interdictor-echolinkIRC channel. (VoIPWX stream,KC4QLP-C and San Antonio Hurricane Evac Operations stream)
