The FPV-HAM TechNet Conference is hosted by an Echolink Conference Bridge, one of the easiest ways to connect to the conference is to use the software provided by Echolink.

In order to download the software you have to submit your valid call sign and your email address. After you submitted the form, you will be presented with the download page. At the time of writing this page, the latest version available is 2.0.908.
The Echolink software is designed for Windows based operating systems, however we believe it will work well on Apple computers as well using the Windows emulator - as long as the software has access to the sound card and the network card on.
Once the software has been downloaded and installed, the use is very easy. Run the software and under the Tools -> Setup fill in the fields for call sign, Password (make one up), Name, Location and make sure to type in a valid email address. Click OK.
