The HamFiles Amateur Radio & PMR File Repository
EchoProducer is now in it's 7th year and continues to be refined, updated and supported by EI4JR. Found on Amateur Radio repeaters around the world, it has become the de-facto speech and control enhancement for Echolink.
Still in the vain of repeaters, commercial PMR radios frequently get re-employed for Ham repeaters. You will find an ever growing collection of programming software and technical data to assist with any repeater project in our download section.

It cuts down the mic gain when strong audio is used. The program runs alongside EchoLink and other add-ons.

The mic level will drop to a level set and recover to the original default mic level that you have set at the end of there over. Features include left and right hand meters, Mic Gain reduction control which ncludes AGC, Mic default level, Mic minimum level, reduce level speed, Trigger level, Seconds to recovery.
Although it works on my systems there will be some sound cards that are not compatible with the limiter so it it doesn't work I'm sorry that there is not a lot I can do about it at this stage this is all in the experimental stage at the moment.
