BASE STATION

The hardware is based on the next generation digital amateur radio system. The D-STAR system provides digitally modulated voice/data communication and high-speed data access over the air. This project has been developed in collaboration with JARL (Japan Amateur Radio League) and is supported by the Japanese Telecommunications Administration.

D-STAR incorporates the power of digital voice and 1kbps data mode on 2m, 70cm, and 23cm. The spectral efficiency, crystal clarity, and the ability of repeating data and voice communications on a single 6.25 kHz channel is something yet to be seen in any other radio service!

The Icom is supplied with an two s"N" Type connector for the transmitter and the receiver to allow easy connection to the diplexer or feeder cables. also includes rear panel a RJ45 connector that allow easy connection to external controller. All housed within one 4RU equipment cabinet.

D-Star Repeater Controller
 

RP2C D-Star Repeater Controller

Icom RP2C controller. D-Star repeater modules communicate digitally with the RP2000V VHF Repeater Base Station also the RP2C can control up to four repeater modules This includes basic in-band as well as crossband operation between any of the four digital voice RF modules. In addition to basic control of the RF modules along with two microwave linking modules.

The RP2C is a digital unit only, there are NO ANALOG INTERFACES provided. You cannot hook up your analog controller, forget about plugging in an Echolink or IRLP interface.
