Photo shows the kit as it comes. this kit requires assembly – last 2 photos show a fully assembled node just so you can see the finished product.

This is a hardware kit that includes MY CUSTOM VERSION OF HAMVOIP SOFTWARE PROVIDED ON THE MICRO SD CARD. This is a game changer in the world of Allstar as no other kit supplier provides this.

LET ME EXPLAIN.. For the extra cost of this kit you get: A mostly configured custom version of Hamvoip software already written to the Micro SD card including a custom Supermon Dashboard already installed. Plus all of the tricky audio settings have been configured. Also you receive access to comprehensive online instructions that steps you through the final configuration.

*PLEASE NOTE* The extra cost of this kit is for the configuration time that I put into the Hamvoip software, plus the comprehensive instructions that I provide. I’m not charging for the software, as it is a free download.

This Node is a Raspberry Pi hosted AllStar RF Node using the AllStarlink network.

The DuraNode is similar to the traditional “hotspot” in that it runs on a Raspberry Pi with an RF hat, and is connected to the AllStarlink network via the internet. The only difference is that the hat uses an FM radio chip, hence no need for a digital radio.

Any FM transceiver with CTCSS that operates in the ham bands can access the node.
