I have the EchoLink software installed on Wind 8, attempt to change callsign to <callsign>-L per instructions. Can't log in, callsign not verified.

I'll keep researching, pending solution from you folks, but if anyone has wrassled this bear before and knows how to kill it, please feel free to advise me.

For the FRIDAY NIGHT ARFCOM IRLP / Echolink Net, I usually come in on the IRLP side. But, primarily to see the text chat box (Where a LOT of hilarious comments are made) I run Echolink also. I've never used anything but my callsign - First Name - Arfcom Screen Name on the net. I've seen the -L for Links, and -R for Repeaters, but am unclear when and why they should be used. Since it works, I'd just use your callsign for now until someone comes up with a better answer.

It won't let me setup SysOp mode just using my callsign. It says I have to have the -L for a link or -R for a repeater.

Did you get your password with "-L" registered with Echolink?

What's the Cliff Notes version of "SysOp" mode? Not familiar with that one.

I googled it all by myself!

Sysop Mode

Choose Sysop mode if you have connected (or intend to connect) a transceiver to your PC, in order to make your rig accessible to other EchoLink users connecting over the Internet. This mode generally requires a special hardware interface between your PC and your transceiver. For more information, see Interfacing .

Pretty counter intuitive, the regular validation link doesn't have that as an option.

And that's the correct question, no I did not.

Fixed now.

Kenwood TM-V71A plugged into my laptop, 25Mb up and down through FiOS

ETA

Will be setting the Kenwood up for crossband repeat and remote control to feed to my Icom 92-AD. I have a N9TAX about 15' up a tree outside the window of my shack.
