Echolink Web Site
From Tim Watson KB1HNZ:

The Echolink conference node that is used is *NEW-ENG*. 
The important thing to keep in mind is that when we do use it, 
which is typically during larger scale events, such as Nor’easters, 
we share the conference with other SKYWARN groups,
including Burlington and Taunton. 

We use Talkgroup 8 (Region North) primarily, 
but sometimes branch off to either NH or ME statewide,
depending on the area of concern.
