GMSK Modem from Matrix Circuits
This board is used by amateur radio operators to build a D-Star compatible Hotspot or full duplex repeater. For a Hotspot, all you need is this small board, an analog transceiver and a PC with internet. It's fun and easy. Let's say you have a D-Star radio, but you don't have perfect access to your closest D-Star repeater. A Hotspot at your QTH allows your D-Star radio to access connected repeaters and/or reflectors worldwide.
This board uses a 3' standard "GMSK cable," with a 9-pin DSub connector to the board, and a 6 pin Mini DIN connector for most ham transceivers with a 9600 Data jack. We have these in stock, or you can build your own.
We also offer different length USB Type A to Type B cables, to connect your Star*Board to your PC.
Note: This board measures only 15mm (H) x 67mm (W) x 51mm (L) -- .6" x 2.64" x 2.01".
