Another transportable D-Star HotSpot project!

I recently received an email from Devon VE5DWR in Saskatoon, Canada. He updated me on his portable D-Star HotSpot project.

Devon used a Pelican 1300 case (larger than the one I used) and has used the extra space to include an LCD screen in the lid, wireless keyboard & industrial strength powered USB hub.  The antennas for the 70cm and 2m DVAP Dongles mount on the lid of the case. Fan cooling ensure the equipment inside the case remains cool with the lid closed.  The TP Link router is mounted under the DVAP Dongles.

Devon uses the FreeStar* software from Ramesh VA3UV running on a Raspberry Pi computer. 

You can see some more photos in this gallery.

Thanks Devon for allowing me to use your photos in this blog entry!
