NOTE: Due to the computer chip shortage, it is near impossible to find Raspberry Pi 3 B+ boards at a reasonable price. We will be out of stock of these bundles until we can acquire more Raspberry Pi's.
If you have your own Pi 2 or 3, you can purchase the pre-programmed microSD card to quickly get on the network or contact us for the SD card image (but only minimal support will be available if you choose to do it yourself).
Everything you need to get started with the myGMRS Network.* Add your repeater to our network and you can link to any other repeater(s) in the network, with permission of course! You will be assigned a node number and we will pre-install the software and configure it for you.
This bundle includes:
- Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ Linux Computer
- 5V 2.5A DC Power Supply
- 32GB Sandisk MicroSD Card with Debian Linux and app_rpt preinstalled
- Installation customized with your myGMRS Node Number
- Fanless Aluminum Heatsink Case (entire case acts as a heatsink dissipating heat) with easy access to all ports
- Aluminum heatsink installed on Ethernet chip
- Radio interface of your choice (select from dropdown menu)
* Just add an interface cable to your repeater of choice (not included).
Note: We do not currently permit simplex hotspots on our network. You must have a repeater that will be associated with your node.
URIxB by DMK Engineering
The URIxB is the URIx we all know and love but with expanded I/O capabilities giving the user 7 I/O lines to choose from. Featuring a C-Media CM119B audio controller, the URIxB provides high-quality full-duplex audio, a +6dB gain op-amp, LED heartbeat and TX indicators, and a neat case. The radio connector is a DB-25 Female, and the recommended mating connector is the Amphenol G17S2510110EU or equivalent DB-25 male connector. A USB A to USB B cable is included.
RIM-Lite by RepeaterBuilder
While the original RB-USB-RIM is a feature-rich USB to radio interface module, the new RIM-Lite family is designed to streamline the most popular features into one cost-effective module.
This interface has a DE-9 connector for connecting to your radio. A USB A to USB Mini-B cable is included.
RIM-Maxtrac by RepeaterBuilder
This interface is a special version of the RIM-Lite which has a Motorola Maxtrac 16-pin connector instead of the DE-9 connector. Designed to be plug-n-play with the Maxtrac/Radius/GM300 line of mobile radios, it also works with many Motorola radios that utilize a 16 or 20-pin dual-row option connector such as the CM200, M1225, SM50, and the CDM Series.
Channel steering is also implemented for radios that are capable of it through their option connector.
Note: It does not work with the GTX Series mobile.
RIM-Maxtrac-RM by RepeaterBuilder
This interface is very similar to the RIM-Maxtrac but includes a second Motorola 16-pin connector for a second radio to be used for receive only. This allows one radio to be the receiver and the other to be the transmitter in a repeater setup.
The RM version does not support channel steering.
Wish you all would have one set up use that use Kenwood Radio's . If you did. I would love to get one and get linked up on to myGMRS with my 625
Rich has really put together a simple linking controller with a Pi programmed for your node. While I am still assembling my gear, I can appreciate the work that has already been done on my behalf. Booted up and linked effortlessly! Very well packaged with enough info to get you started. Thanks! WRCU527 with no traffic!
