Most of the published (web or otherwise) information (documentation, etc.) about accessing and using Echolink is accurate, but quite technical, and seems to overlook the practical needs, knowledge gaps, and abilities of newbies (like me). Lafreniere anticipates these basic questions (and more) and answers them, and does so very clearly. Whether one uses SignaLink, Rigblaster, or some comparable produce, there's lots of good, easy to follow, information and instruction.One major criticism of this guide is the lack of an index, which I consider to be essential for a book on a topic like this. Another criticism is that there seems to be too much emphasis on using EchoLink with Windows XP, and Vista, and comparatively little focusing on Windows 7, which ships with the majority of new PCs.

I have read this book on the operation of the EchoLink system. The manual goes into the operation of EchoLink, concerning Amateur Radio. The book has several station set up scenarios that you can use for your station operations.It is also easy to read and understand.

This is a comprehensive guide for getting up to speed on EchoLink. It is well written and contains many helpful graphics and illustrations. Great addition to any Ham library.

Good beginners book introducing echolink. Some information was stale with respect to the interface i wasusing but overall, informing and good read.

Great basic guide. Although you can learn most of it separately, this info is all gathered into one -- bound -- place!

This book is comprehensive and very easy to read. It should be really valuable to someone starting out with EchoLink.

Some good tips but most of the content can be gleaned from the help files within the Echolink program.
