      Hi folks,

      As creator of the DV-RPTR V1 project (name, hardware and firmware) I'm happy that it will continue...
      This board is not perfect - I know, but its a usable low-price solution for building hotspots, repeaters and stand-alone repeaters.

      I will restart my firmware development and I hope to find specialists they can help improve the opensource firmware.

      Since I "kicked out" from the DVRPTR team, I feel this project drifts into the wrong direction. There is still no source code available for the XDVRPTR firmware.

      Next feature on my ToDo list is a simple stand-alone repeater function for locations with no or remote gateway functionality.

        could the v1 ambe board make a comeback ?

        Something else which would go nicely with it would be a way to populate
        the rpt1 and rpt2 fields automatically when in range of a repeater.

            Hi all,
            thank you Bruce for starting this project, I think the V1 hardware really is worth a continous and evolving life.
            Also thanks to Jan for joining, this gives a good "backbone" for the project.
            My personal interest is modes using the Ambe board. I do normally reach 3, sometimes 4, repeaters from my home QTH in Oslo, with a poor antenna. So I leave the repeater fuctionality to others :-)
            I do have some ideas though, will come back with those later.
            Regards
            LB6YD Gaute

                  I think the AMBE board add-on will be a welcome, and necessary, addition, after DVRPTR V1 boards start shipping.

                          So glad you are on the team, so to speak, and that you are focussed on the basic purpose of the V1. As I have mentioned elsewhere, it would be fantastic if firmware for both D-STAR and P25 (which was in the original plan when the modem project started) could become available.

                          The simple fact is that the V1 board was the catalyst for the sudden D-STAR expansion by allowing low cost but effective repeaters to be produced. If D-STAR is to continue to grow then such a product needs to be available for some time.

                          It could have the same impact on Amateur P25 now that second hand P25 radios are appearing.

                          Thanks again.
