P17311: Radio-IP Hotspot Transceiver


Project Summary Project Information

Ham radio has been around for a really long time. The term ‘ham’ is a shorter word for ‘amateur’. It has been connecting people over very long distances and has been used for a variety of purposes. In this project, an IP Hotspot Transceiver is built for use with ham radio. Radio over Internet Protocol has improved communication between two points. With an IP Transceiver, a radio would be able to connect to any other radio via the Internet. Because of this, there are virtually no distance restrictions as long as there is Internet access.

The goal of the project is to build a single board that combines previous designs implemented using external USB hardware adapters and radios with proprietary connections. The result would be a daughter board with radio-IP hotspot transceiver module for the Raspberry Pi. AllStar Link software should be used in this project and the node can be connected to the global network.

The primary customer for this project is Jim Stefano.
