    I even re-layout the board and add a pre-amp using MCP601T and fit into a ZTE wireless router running APRS4R as IGATE. I call it OT++ SMD and only sell it in

      I even re-layout the board and add a pre-amp using MCP601T and fit into a ZTE wireless router running APRS4R as IGATE. I call it OT++ SMD and only sell it in China with permission from Scott.

      The pre-amp helps the decoding the low level signal from DATA port from mobile radios like Yaesu FT-7800R, 7900R and 8800R etc.

      Thanks,

      Yes, it s not great but it will decode. The OTUSB and T2/T3 series do a better job at decoding. Scott

        Quick question. What s the typical current consumption of the OTUSB? That seems like just the ticket. 73 s Matthew VK5ZM

                    Yes, I ve got the first batch of boards here already. There s a small error on the board so it needs a very short bridge wire, but it works. I still need to

                      Yes, I've got the first batch of boards here already. There's a small
                      error on the board so it needs a very short bridge wire, but it works.
                      I still need to write some code to allow switching between RS-232 and
                      TTL polarity. The board can run on 3v or 5v and works with either the
                      OTUSB or T3 MCU.
