NSW JOTA-JOTI's Digipeater/s (Planed)

NSW JOTA-JOTI Is looking into runing a Digipeater and even makeing a few protable units for events. Testing so far has been done with tiny track 4 hardware (pictured below) and the results were good

but Raspberry PI (see below) based system may work out to be a beter system if only for portable systems.

(see our Rasberry PI page for more) in bouth cases a VHF Radio is reqired current idears is to use a yaesu radio as pictured below for the fixed Digipeater, Radios for portable units are still being looked into

The Digipeater will oprate on 145.175Mhz The system name will most likely be VK2KFH-1 the Portabales VK2KFH-3
