Control Codes

Public Repeater Control Codes

There are not very many control codes available to members of the general public; however, those that are available are published here.

Also on the control codes page, our 224.08 & 445.20 repeaters no longer have user-accessible 220-440 link codes, so you can delete 08201 & 08200. And since we now leave 223.96 & 447.20 linked full-time at the TMO site you can include 447.20 for the JPL-TMO link control codes.

Please note, when controlling the repeater or IRLP node, you MUST identify before sending any control codes. This is a requirement of the JPL ARC and the FCC rules Part 97.

IRLP/EchoLink Control codes

The IRLP/EchoLink Node is accessible from the JPL repeaters, both 224.080 and 445.200. Using the JPL-TMO link, the Node is also accessible from the TMO 223.960 repeater.

In order to control the Node from the TMO repeater once the JPL-TMO link is turned on, all that is necessary is to add an additional “*” to the control code. i.e. To play the Wx report, use this command: **839
