And one more, Winter is coming, so let us see who mans the gate.
Name: Robert W Cowdrey.
Callsign: KB1UPZ.
Position: Members Services Director.

I believe that I became interested in the hobby about 40 year ago when I first learned how to work with electronics. Following that I received my amateur radio license when I was 66 years old and have held it for approximately 8 years now and believe that it was one of the best things I have ever done. I am continuously learning about the hobby and new things as well as working with the board to better TheGuild and enhance our members experiences. Part of what I do for TheGuild is that I sit as the Members Services Director which means that I insure that all membership processes are followed and that everything is going smoothly with our members. Secondly I also run the Friendship Net on the IRN/Zello every week on monday at 17:00 EST for the benefit of our members and visitors.

Some people on TheGuild refer to me as “The Gatekeeper” in part because Gareth (M6IGJ) called me that when TheGuild and IRN first began a partnership and in part because I have been there to welcome new member to the system as they come. Till today I still man my post at the Gate, Welcoming new members and assisting old ones to the best of my abilities.

So, There goes our Gatekeeper to man his post, Who is next to tell all? let us know in the comments below.

And here is one more highlight, we have almost reached the end of our list, but still a few more staff member to highlight.
Name: Christopher Fuselier
Call-Sign: AF5XP
Position: D-Star XRF134 Administrator
I have been an amateur radio operator since 2011 where I acquired my General class and the callsign KF5NSA, after that I upgraded to my Extra in 2015 with the allsign AF5XP. You will usually find me on 20, 80 and 160 meters as well as DMR, Allstar, Echolink and system fusion but mostly on Dstar or P25. I joined the Guild in 2016 and am currently running the Dstar Reflector, making sure it is working as it should and managing the interlinks and software updates as needed.
I see the guild growing and expanding to become a hub where all Ham’s and new Ham prospects can meet, rag chew and discuss radio.
To me, Amateur radio offers the opportunity to go interesting places you might not otherwise go to, do interesting things you might not otherwise get to do, expand your knowledge of geography & to expand your knowledge of earth and space science.

So...who is next?

Alright, Here comes one highlight I am sure you are all excited to read. So, Without further delay......
Name: Jason Mathew Ford
Call-Sign: W4JMF
Position: President and Executive Director
I have been involved in radio since 1979, but obtained a license in 1998. I have used 6 meters, 10 meters, GMRS, CB radio, but now only use VHF/UHF, DMR, D-star, Echolink, CQ100, Zello, IRN, and other VOIP modes. I am one of the founder of World Wide Amateur Radio Guild inc., founded February 10, 2016, and incorporated on march 23, 2016.
Currently I am president of the board of directors and executive director. The guild’s foundational values have been consistent as stated in our mission statement: "it is our mission to promote the amateur radio hobby to those interested in radio communications. We provide the opportunity to gain experience in radio communications, theory, technology, and fellowship. We use various methods for communication: VOIP/ROIP, Social Media, and of course, RF linking and experimentation." our guiding principles since the beginning continue to assist me in all decisions: education, training, and fellowship. The future of our organization is bright. Our growth has been consistent, and with the popularity of network radios, our organization is positioned to become a driving force in the amateur radio community.
To finish all this off, a small piece of trivia about myself: my grandfather, CB handle "hezekiah" taught me how to solder when I was 6 years old. I still have his old realistic navaho 23 channel CB with his original FCC granted license attached on the base, and his desk mike, circa 1975.

So....Who should be up next?

The VoIP Hurricane Net is now linked to Hamshack Hotline on The Guild bridge 313 (PIN 48453) and IRN HH Bridge 313 for one way traffic. You may still use the bridge, but audio will not pass through to the net once it begins.
Thanks to Jeff KC8QCH for the IAX use of his node and linking it to the net. This service is provided courtesy of the team at TheGuild!

SPOTLIGHT: Hamshack Hotline


Hamshack Hotline

Hamshack Hotline (HH) is a FREE dedicated voip telecom service for the Ham Radio community.  Typically, phones are established in hamshacks, EOCs, Clubs & club members, ARES, and other Ham related areas and functions.  It is not the intention of HH to replace traffic carried over radio in an emergency or other tactical operation, but rather to augment it, by offloading managerial tactical operations and providing a full duplex path for such communications when spectrum is occupied, conditions diminished, or otherwise unavailable.   HH also supports FAXing of information (with appropriate equipment) which allows tactical offices to share documents & data between tactical locations.   In a non-tactical use, HH is an effective resource for off-air troubleshooting when you need to coordinate a troubleshoot of a radio circuit off-air and between multiple SMEs.   In addition to all this, conference bridges on the HH network allow large groups of Hams to coordinate & meet in real time anywhere in the world.

The World Wide Amateur Radio Guild Inc. is a proud affiliate and user of this great system, and adding more of our members everyday.  We also have bridge conference available to our members at extension 313!

What is RFinder


The RFinder is the most advanced DMR Transceiver combined with an embedded powerful smartphone. It delivers up to 4 Watt of RF Power out of its very robust case.

Running Android, you can install all the available Play Store apps. This means that you can install Zello, Team Speak, EchoLink and many others and use the built-in PTT button to key the transmission on such apps. Can you imagine that? If you don’t reach an EchoLink node, just use your RFinder 3G, 4G or even WiFi, and you are connected. Never miss a QSO again just because there isn’t a nearby repeater. And because the RFinder has an updated database of worldwide repeaters, EchoLink nodes and DMR talk groups, you never have to memorize anything. You just search the station or repeater you want to connect, and the RFinder will change all the settings for you, either using DMR or conventional analogue FM. The RFinder is so advanced that will allow you to see on a map all the available DMR/EchoLink/Conventional repeaters nearby. Just click on your selected station, and your radio settings are changed: RX and TX frequency, Tones, offsets, splits, color codes. Everything! Welcome to the first Click & Talk transceiver. If this is not phenomenal what is it then?

RFinder – The World Wide Repeater Directory is a database of Amateur Radio repeaters worldwide. We have 60.000 repeaters in 170+ countries. We have created the Earth’s most feature complete apps for Android and iOS… now the RFinder team kicks it up another notch… with the first Software Defined HT (SDHT), based on Android, with integrated GSM/4G LTE.
