BTW - I'd have both the CF-IDE adapter and the USB stick, - or
at least a USB female connector on the front panel of the
portable repeater box. This lets you plug in a USB
stick when you want to transfer files on or off of the unit.

Many thanks for you idea. Where did you get the board and approx how $ did the board cost? I have most of the repeater done and hope to get started soon with the IRLP part. Tnx again.

Instead of a USB stick, you might want to try a Compact Flash card and an IDE to CF adaptor. I have that running on my home node with mini-ITX board and works great. I do know of others that use this setup and it works great. Not expensive at all and I think a bit more reliable than a USB stick.

Hi to All:
Being a new member and a current owner of node 4491, which is used to link four 927 repeaters to the internet, I have decided to build a "suit case" 440 repeater with a IRLP or Echolink/IRLP node. This will be used for emergency communications or when the 440 goes down. I understand that some members have located processor boards and are using a USB stick to do the same thing. Not wanting to re-invent the wheel, I would appreciate any links or info where I can get these boards and hardware. Tnx again for your help.
