Station Mark 1

I am really thrilled about being able to bring to the local area my Analogue Simplex Gateway.

Many years ago I used to operate a Gateway station from my old QTH in Somerset.

15 Years later, A lots changed.

I don't seem to remember the regulations being quite such a brain twister, then again.

Then again my memory may not be accurate.

So Gateway Station Mark 1 - It Was using a Raspberry Pi. The Software was OpenRepeater which proved to be really easy to configure and the Radio was my old faithful Icom IC-706MKIIG.

True Radio wise a little overkill but we use what we have?

It was all connected via a SignaLink USB Interface and COS & PTT was done via the Raspberry Pi GPIO pins.

Nice clean simple.
