My name is Wayne (KD1NN) I heard about echolink mode , by using 2 meter repeaters to make contacts world wide. Please correct me if im wrong .
I am interested in trying out this new mode , however I'm just getting back into the hobby and do not have any other hams that know how this is done. Could someone get me started in the right direction .
Thanks Wayne

You may be able to access an Echolink connected repeater with a basic handheld radio.

Alternately, verified users may be able to get into the Echolink system via Internet using a computer.

I just use my cell phone. Download the Echolink App and have fun. I use it to check into an out of state net that one of my friends runs. Go to the Echolink web page for instructions on how to sign up etc.
