Instructions for connecting radios, repeaters AllStarLink interfaces including the RTCM, GPS', URI/URI X and like devices.

GPS

Motorola

CDM

CDMs make great nodes. This eBay reseller has very nice cables. Use to connect to URI or RTCM.

CDM Cable from WB9KNX - Cable 83 has only one output to use for either COS or CTCSS. Use another cable if you need both COS and CTCSS.

MTR-2000

Quantar

The Quantar can be tricky to interface as it's extremely programmable and you will need a wireline card for I/O connections. By default the I/O will not work unless the "wildcard" table is programed. This wildcard table is Boolean logic of interrupt states in the radio, is extremely flexible and frustrating to debug. It's a base station in it's own class.

Front of Quantar and controller

Note you will want to use BEW mode on the RTCM if using the RTCM do squelch.

Syntor X

The Motorola Syntor X with an Xcat installed makes a great frequency agile remote base. For more information see this Syntor Xcat page.

VRM-850

Kenwood

Repeater Controler

An example of using RTCMs to replace 420 links

Spectra Engineering

  • MX800 Base station - Bryan Fields, W9CR has a complete setup guide for the MX800 Base station which includes fallback to the built in controller and an audio delay module.

Tait

URI / URI X

The URI is Manfactured and sold by DMK Engineering.
