An Elke Link (named for Pete Elke WI6H) is a link that goes to sleep after a period of inactivity on the node's receiver input. While asleep any traffic from connected nodes is not transmitted. This is useful for:

  • Solar or other green nodes
  • Mobile nodes
  • Co-channel friendly nodes
  • Low duty cycle nodes

This is a rpt.conf setting. The value is in furlong/firkin/fortnight (FFF) system units... a bit of Jim Dixon humor.
