On Sunday, March 3rd Ohio Link will be changed to a digital only room. The benefit is that folks running the new firmware on their FT2D, FTM-100 and FTM-400 radios will be able to connect via PDN vs HRI200 or Direct Mode. The downside is that the room will no loner have IRLP or EchoLink and the very very small number of analog nodes who occasionally connect will no longer be able to access the room.
