The "Hams In Broadcast" Reflector is 9615 - Channel 5 on the Great Lakes IRLP Reflector in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The "Hams In Broadcast" Reflector is available on Echolink, too - look for "SBE" or 96150. The IRLP Reflector and Echolink *SBE* Hams in Broadcast Conference are tied together, along with Allstar node 27405.
The Hams in Broadcast Reflector is available for use by Amateur Radio Operators to talk about Broadcasting. General discussion is also encouraged. If you are employed in broadcasting, or you are interested in broadcasting, please feel free to drop into the reflector at anytime.
The combined Echolink and IRLP and Allstar conference bridge is located on a server owned by Mike, KB8ZGL, which is in a secure SAS 70 Type II certified data center, located in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. The host for the Hams in Broadcast IRLP 9615 and Echolink 96150 conference bridge is Tom, K8TB. Also on this reflector is our "Goodwill Ambassador", Brew, WA2ZST. Find him, pull up a chair and have a great time.

Twice a month, this "Hams In Broadcast Reflector" is also the home of the SBE IRLP HAMnet, an official SBE meeting on the air.

Hams In Broadcast Reflector Mailing List
Join the weekly net for the Hams In Broadcast on Sunday night at 8 PM ET, 7 CT, 6 MT and 5 PT
"The SBE IRLP/Echolink HAMnet," is a great way for broadcast engineers and other amateurs (any and all are welcome) to contact one another, share technical information, discuss broadcasting techniques and get the latest information on SBE programs and activities. IRLP HAMnet joins the long-running HF SBE HAMnet, as official functions of the Society of Broadcast Engineers.
The IRLP is a method of connecting different repeaters across the country and the world via the Internet. An amateur operator, using a repeater connected to the internet via an IRLP link uses a 4 digit node number to connect to another repeater across the US or in another country. Amateurs regularly use the IRLP to talk to other hams around the world via their VHF or UHF radios thru a local repeater. You can also join the conference bridge or the net by using node "SBE' or node number 96150 on Echolink.
The SBE IRLP/Echolink HAMnet was developed as the SBE HF shortwave 'Chapter of the Air' is not always accessible by 'HAMS' who cannot erect HF antennas and because of the HF band's susceptibility to HF radio propagation characteristics. And anyone with a computer and Internet connection can have an Echolink connection to the reflector and the twice a month net.
The SBE IRLP HAMnet is based in Denver using the local IRLP nodes on the UHF/VHF repeater system. The HAMnet meets on the first and third Saturdays of each month at 11:00 am, U.S. Mountain Time, 1:00 pm Eastern Time.
Here's how you can participate. The SBE IRLP HAMnet control station begins the net by bringing up the Great Lakes Repeater Group Reflector IRLP Link on the local Denver repeaters. Then, you identify the local IRLP repeater in your area and, unless it is a closed club repeater, simply tone in, IRLP node number 9615 or Echolink node number 96150. This will connect you to the Great Lakes Repeater Group Reflector and the SBE IRLP HAMnet. The Great Lakes Conference Bridge can handle many different nodes connecting together for one big group connection. For more information about the net and how to participate, go to www.qsl.net/ke0vh/sbehamnet or, you can contact Jack Roland, KE0VH, net control at email@example.com.
Unless connected elsewhere, the WA2CBS Repeater, on the roof of the the CBS Broadcast Center in New York stays connected to the SBE Reflector around the clock.
If you have any technical or operational questions about the "Hams In Broadcast" conference bridge/reflector, please contact it's host, Tom, K8TB k8tb (at) bosscher.org
If you have a repeater or a link that is on this reflector, I would like to start an area on this web site showing off those installations. Got an IRLP repeater up 12,500 feet in the mountains? Got a 100 milliwatt HT acting as your node? I don't care, send me a picture and some information, and we will post it here.
