AllStar and EchoLink are Voice over internet protocols (VOIP) that add linking capabilities from ham radio node to node all around the world.
AllStar uses a popular, open source phone system, asterisk to implement the VOIP.

Some cool scripts for AllStar created by K0KN (ex. control it via email/text)
For radios to use, search on eBay for old commercial, wide-band radios ( they are cheaper because of the transition from wide to narrow band for commercial radios)
Good radio examples : Motorola SM-50, SM-120 , Kenwood TK-805D and many, many more.
Fun system is now private for outbound connections, but still has some useful information at k0jsc.com
Good luck on setting up your node, and email me for any questions! Note that questions asked via comment or emails will likely be covered in a future tutorial on the AllStar series.
