I used a surecom SR-629 (https://www.amazon.com/Gam3Gear-Surecom-SR-629-Repeater-Controller/dp/B01M0KVOC2) with two K1 cables (http://www.409shop.com/409shop_product.php?id=122463)

Only thing I recommend is that your TX radio be reduced to low power only if you plan to have a bit of traffic on your repeater, I would also set the TOT to about 60 seconds. This will prolong the life of the transmitter and prevent burnout. I run the standard 880 (25W) and I set the low power out to about 10W which for portable use is perfect. Outside of those two things, you don't really need to do much to the radio, its all plug and play.

QRZ is not letting me log in today :( However if you PM me here I'll shoot an e-mail to you right away. For the most part its all plug and play, no radio mods or anything, just uses the mic port on the front of the radio and the speaker port on the back.
