The TRXrptr serves as a highly adaptable repeater controller platform that incorporates DAC/ADC technology and essential audio filtering to enhance the overall audio quality. It seamlessly pairs with any Raspberry Pi and can automatically bypass audio/cos or PTT in the event of a power loss, guaranteeing uninterrupted operation. It also facilitates the transmission of PTT (Push-To-Talk) signals and the reception of COR (Carrier Operated Relay) or COS (Carrier Operated Signal) through GPIO. The COS detection input supports a wide voltage range, from 3 to 30V.
For user convenience, the TRXrptr package includes a Breakout board, simplifying the wiring connections for your repeater system. This Breakout board is equipped with additional trimmers that enable precise adjustment of audio settings, including gain and impedance matching.
The board has undergone successful testing with Motorola MTR2000, Hytera MD780, Kenwood MD380, and is expected to be compatible with most repeaters.
It offers an excellent solution for setting up an EchoLink/SVXLink analog repeater system.
