I think you mean something like an Allstar node.  On the store associated with this page there might even be a package deal.

I know some of the guys that link repeaters use the Pi for the controller. I jsut see no need. No requirement to ID so simple is best.


Unless the repeater is PRIVATE AND FAMILY USE ONLY, it does need to ID.


(c) Any GMRS repeater station is not required to transmit station identification if:

(1) It retransmits only communications from GMRS stations operating under authority of the individual license under which it operates; and,

(2) The GMRS stations whose communications are retransmitted are properly identified in accordance with this section.

Note the highlighted "AND". Both (1) and (2) must apply -- this means only those operating under the owner's license [ie: immediate family] are using the repeater AND those (immediate family) properly ID with the owner's call sign.

No third-party users with their own call signs are applicable to this section.
