One only has to be a licensed Amateur Radio Operator to get access to Echol ink or any of the other networks.
Chris mentions that very few of the members are actual amateur radio operators. therefore that would prohibit them from being on echolink. he also mentions that there too far to monitor the local repeater. but I think he is wanting does access to echo link to monitor without monitoring a repeater however, I have no idea if that's possible.

I'm not an Echolink user, but the concept that a ham operator cannot use Echolink because of belonging to a group with too few hams sounds very, very wrong. See http://www.echolink.org/
As best as I can determine, ANY licensed ham radio operator can use Echolink. There may be some licensing requirements I don't know about (such as being at least a Tech) but my limited research says that belonging to a group is irrelevant.

PS: It also strikes me that LISTENING to any amateur radio transmission should be available to anyone, licensed or not.  ct

Hi Jay, 
 I was wondering if there were any scanner apps that the Shelby repeater was broadcasting on. The reason I ask is that currently our REACT group has very few HAM members so they are not allowed to use Echolink, even to listen.. They would be interested in listening to the REACT net though. Geographically we are too far away the    receive the signal from the Shelby machine on a regular scanner. Please let me know if you have any ideas.
