Sounds like your getting into an IRLP node somehow. 2 Meter shouldn't reach England....lol that would be one heck of a bounce.....

Yeah, that's what I thought too. :D

Yeah, it's a node.  In fact, I think it's an Echolink node.  One of the guys here in town hooked up his radio to it & it just happened to be the freq. I have programmed into my mobil that myself and a few of the other local guys use for simplex.  Of course I didn't know that at 5:30 this morning. ;D  I didn't find out until later when I was sitting in the parking lot of the license bureau jawin' with a HAM club buddy, & Napoleon came on the air & I had a chance to talk to him.

It was still cool either way.  Plus it kind of got me fired up about some stuff that I haven't read much about. ;)
