Blind Hams Bridge info

Here you will find all of the ways to connect to the Blind Hams Bridge

Due to the nature of interconnected digital networks, it takes up to
several seconds for your transmission to propagate through the bridge to
everybody else. To avoid missing words and doubled talking, please try
to follow this procedure.

1. Press the PTT and wait a little before beginning to speak. and

2. Wait a couple of seconds after the last person has finished speaking
before you start speaking yourself

This is a link where you can listen to a stream of the audio from the bridge.
