AllStar/Echolink node with frequency agile U/V Repeater...


Recommended Posts

So I built this little machine, scabbing together some pieces and parts and used equipment with two new pieces that I just couldn't fabricate, it's a frequency agile AllStar/Echolink node with a frequency agile Uhf/Vhf Repeater.


What I was wondering is, would anyone here be interested in how I did this project? And are they looking to possibly build something like this for themselves?


This is a primarily a GMRS forum, but I've seen a lot of guys who are somewhat interested in ham radio stuff too.  This project is going to be going into a 6U Gator Box to be transported and field deployable (field days, JOTA/JOTI, who knows what else).  


I've had this thing on the air now for about 4 days, and have had NO heat problems, even with the Hawaii AllStar / Mainland net which lasted for over an hour and the radio transmitted for almost 100% of that time.


BTW the radio is a Yaesu FT-8800R.

Well, the ham radio forum here exists to let us discuss that too :)   I'm an Echolink user.  I actually use an HT with an ARS Echolink adapter.  Works very well.  Not high profile; but works for me.  I used to run a high profile node with a nice, 65 watt transmitter; but I stopped.  Now, I just use mine when I'm in a mood for Echolink.
