Extend the D-Star network to your neighborhood! Start with a D-Star radio, then using this board with an analog radio and a PC with internet, you can connect to repeaters and reflectors around the world. Learn more and see a diagram here.
If you have any questions, we'll work with you to be sure you'll be successful in setting up your Hotspot. Note: the analog transceiver in a Hotspot ideally will support 9600 baud packet data. Often Hams have a spare analog radio available, or they pick one up at a hamfest or club auction. Again, if you have any questions, email them to the address below.
