Operating Etiquette
Identify Identify your station before bringing up a link and after taking down a link.  "This is {call sign} connecting to node {number number} ..." or "This is {call sign} {disconnecting/bring down} the link ..."
Slow Down IRLP is not as fast as simplex or local repeater contacts, therefore you must key your transmitter and wait for a moment before speaking. Otherwise the beginning of your transmission will not be heard.
Pause between transmissions! especially on Reflectors. Many repeaters run half duplex links to their IRLP node, therefore they can only disconnect between transmissions. Please wait a few seconds between transmissions.
Reflectors Individual IRLP nodes support only a single connection to another node or Reflector. Reflectors support many incoming connections. Every node connected to the same reflector talks to every other node connected, i.e. a conference bridge type service. All reflector node numbers begin with 9. 

Miscellaneous Items
Call Waiting Node 3839 supports the IRLP Call Waiting feature. If the node is connected somewhere, and another node attempts to connect to us, you will hear "Call from ..."  The calling node will hear a message telling them where we are connected. If you are connected to a reflector, the calling node may simply connect to the same reflector, or you may disconnect and call that node directly.  To repeat the call waiting information, dial *69.
Other Info If you still have questions, please feel free to contact a WARS member over the air or the node's trustee on the air or via e-mail: n0oym@arrl.net
