You may want to refer to this page on the New England Repeater Directory (http://www.nerepeaters.com/simplex.htm).
All simplex nodes in MA are listed. Most of the IRLP nodes have standard codes: (*0 – node status /XXXX – The node number you want to dial would be an “X” /73 – clear node). EchoLink nodes have mostly standard codes: (Dial the node number / # to clear). If you are not sure about the node, contact the node owner or control operator.
You can listen to the space shuttle audio on IRLP reflector 9877 on either 147.000+, 145.490-, or my node 147.540s. Just dial 9877. You can also listen on EchoLink *NASA* conference #13599.

Remember when these catalogs were worth hours of reading…again, again and again? Here’s a great collection of Rat Shack catalogs starting with 1939 thru present day. The site is missing some issues so if you run across one, send it in for scanning. I really miss the pre-1970’s Radio Shack! Thanks to John, WA1LSH for the link.
There’s been a flurry of activity recently on the AMSAT-BB listserv about AO-27. Thanks to the efforts of the command team, the satellite has been restarted and is now operational again. The AO-27 webpage still lists the satellite as “On Orbit Checkout” which means the satellite may not fully operational yet, but there are people reporting to the mailing list that the repeater is active over North America.
AO-27 is an older satellite, being inserting into orbit in 1993. Because it is so old, the satellite is timed to only be in “repeater” mode while over North American latitudes, with it being in telemetry mode immediately before and after. To get more details on the schedule, check out the AO-27 webpage.
Many thanks to the AO-27 command team for their efforts in keeping the bird in service.
