We have created an Raspberry PI Raspian SDcard image for the PI2 and 3 containing both the DV4Mini abd DV4Mini Compact software. This image will boot up only with a Waveshare LCD TFT screen as seen here:
Getting ready for Dayton 2016, so I decided to build 2 portable nodes. One for IRLP, and another for Allstar to take on the road.
IRLP Node 8205 insides
The IRLP version is my personal node 8205. It is difficult to build these because of the proprietary and closed environment IRLP operates under, so I may not build any more of these. This uses a Baofeng BF888S radio, which are easy to modify, and make excellent UHF portable nodes.
KP4TR Allstar Portable Node
The Allstar version is not only easier to build, but can be used immediately as a private node or Echolink, or tied into the public Allstarlink network. So I can easily build these using either the DMK Engineering URI FOB, which are wonderful interfaces, or the R.A.L.I interface built by Omar Reyes (K9MAR).
Allstar node insides
Both IRLP and Allstar version use a Raspberry PI computer. The IRLP is a Raspberri PI2, where the Allstar is a Raspberry PI3. At the time of this posting I had issues using IRLP with the RPI3, but hopefully this has been resolved.
Here’s a video of the IRLP node 8205 and the multicolor LED and synthesized audio.
El AIRA Cloud ha sido creado para mejorar el servicio de conferencia de *AIRA* y Allstar KB9PTI.
En ves de correr desde conexiones residenciales de Internet, ahora la conferencia de Echolink *AIRA* y el servidor de Allstar KB9PTI (28679) esta corriendo en servidores comerciales corriendo “en la nube”. Esto nos da la habilidad de aceptar múltiples conexiones y un ancho de banda mas amplio sin tener problemas de conectividad.
Para conectarse a la conferencia de *AIRA*, se conecta a la conferencia *AIRA* o el numero 1458 usando Echolink en el Iphone, Androide, o desde su casa usando Echolink en Windows.
I recently picked up the Baofeng UV-6 dual band 2 meter and 70 cm radio for $35 free shipping from China. I was curious about this model due to the fact it had 2 meter capability which I was looking for a possible APRS or Allstarlink radio, and no DTMF buttons or LCD panel. More here….
