ARRLNEWS Automatic RoIP Audio

Currently streaming ARRL Audio News November 23, 2022 ~10 minutes

The *ARRLNEWS* Radio over Internet Protocol (RoIP) system automatically plays back the ARRL Audio News for EchoLink, IRLP and other Amateur Radio RoIP systems. The home page for ARRlAudio News is at

The *ARRLNEWS* audio transmission will start automatically upon connecting and pause periodically to avoid timeouts and to allow station ID or local operator control. Pauses will occur automatically between news sections where the Morse code K is sent, or if the transmission goes for more than three minutes. Most news sections are less than two minutes. When audio playback is complete the connection is dropped. Users may disconnect at any time. The ARRL Audio News is updated weekly on Friday, usually in the afternoon or evening eastern USA time.

If you use the RoIP system to air the ARRL Audio News on your local repeater or transmitter, please send E-mail to to let them know. Or if you have questions about the RoIP audio service, please send an E-mail to

Allstar nodes may utilize chan_echolink or chan_tlb channel driver modules to connect via EchoLink or theLinkbox (tlb). If using chan_tlb include a line similar to the following in the tlb.conf [nodes] stanza section.

No conferencing or communication is provided between connected nodes. Each connected node hears a seperate copy of the audio stream. Echolink connections utilize the GSM CODEC. IRLP and other connections default to the uncompressed or u-law CODEC.

The *ARRLNEWS* system is similar to the *NEWSLINE* system provided by Skip WB6YMH.
