IRLP [FR]Extract from Wikipedia

The Internet Radio Linking Project, also called IRLP, is a project that links amateur radio stations around the world by using Voice over IP (VoIP). Each gateway consists of a dedicated computer running custom software that is connected to both a radio and the Internet. This arrangement forms what is known as an IRLP Node. Since all end users communicate using a radio as opposed to using a computer directly, IRLP has adopted the motto "Keeping the Radio in Amateur Radio".

IRLP #2006
UPDATE, September 2012: Our IRLP node was moved on VE2RMP repeater (146.760 - , 103.5 Hz)
This IRLP node can be found on VA2RMP, our VHF repeater and is operated by VE2YU Cliff Sutton from his home. Cliff purchased the IRLP Board in Dayton 2005 and installed it into an IBM Aptivia computer which is running Linux. IRLP can only be attained via radio. A Motorola VHF transceiver is used as the link radio. To access the IRLP node you need only to enter in a valid IRLP node number to connect. The node is listed on the IRLP website under VA2RMP the VHF repeater.

At right, the link radio in Cliff's shack. It is connected to the linux computer which is connected to the internet. The antenna is a 3 element Yagi at approximately 40 feet oriented towards the repeater site. Cliff’s shack equipment consists of an Icom IC-7300, Henry 2K3 amplifier and a TA33 HF Tri-bander and an Icom ID-5100 for VHF and UHF.
