APRS Digipeater

I run a small fill-in digipeater 7S7K-2 SA7LNK-2 and it’s all(most) green!

The setup is comprised of…

  • Kenwood TH-D7e v.1 + Diamond V/UHF at ~14m
  • Raspberry Pi + APRX
  • Solarpanel + 2 x 7Ah Gel batteries

First tests were done in September 2014 – issues with APRX ptt’ing the TH-D7.
Solar power was added in October and semi-permanent status by November.

Need to get a better antenna. Directional pointing SSW approx 200° to cover my most used routes.
