Hi, I would like to know about the myGMRS SD card and using a Rpi as a repeater controller. (I am currently using the ID-O-Matic IV with 2 GM300 Radios, a Harris 6 Cavity Duplexer, 400Max Coax to a Tram 1486 Antenna @ 40'. But I have been having issues with the Controller and I have sent it back to Radio Dan for repair/diagnosis) So, looking to the future here I want to use the same equipment above but instead of the ID-O-Matic IV, I want to use a RM-Maxtrac-RM attached to a Rpi 3B+ as the controller. If I buy the myGMRS SD Card to put in the Pi does the software have the ability to be a controller for me here locally and then If I want, when I want, I can link to the myGMRS National Net System? I've been researching this topic quite a bit and even looked at Open Repeater but According to their forums the software is "still in development. and I would have to do a custom build of 2.2.x using the GitHub script." The best info I have found to date can be found here, its a PDF FIle -> https://na5rc.net/MONOGRAPHS/Monograph_Allstar-Newbie-Guide.pdf And that is where I think I am going but I also think I would like to be able in the future to link my repeater to the myGMRS system. So I guess I am still at the question of if I buy the myGMRS SD card will it have the local repeater controller functions on it of like, Morse ID, Voice ID, Beacon ID, DTMF capabilities etc? There really isn't a description about the card other than it will let you link to the myGMRS repeater system that I can find. Thanks for reading! Jimmie / ke0eyh/wrjr790
