svxlink-hotspot SHOP 

Experience the power of the SVXLink Hotspot, a cutting-edge HAT designed exclusively for the Raspberry Pi Zero.

Packed with a formidable 0.5W/1W UHF (70cm) or VHF (2m) FM radio module, this versatile device is accompanied by a state-of-the-art DAC/ADC, enabling it to function flawlessly as an EchoLink/SVXLink hotspot.

What's more, with the combination of a remote SVXLink with AnalogBridge (DVSwitch), you gain access to digital networks, including the Brandmeister and OpenDMR network, unleashing a world of limitless possibilities.

We advise to use the hotspot only with 0.5 Watt output power !

For those planning to connect their hotspot to a base antenna, we strongly advise incorporating an additional band filter. This essential component acts as a safeguard, preventing any potential signal interference due to harmonics.
