Diversity is beautiful. Let’s look at all the rig control options we encounter in modern and classic amateur radio transceivers and the ways to realize their best potential for digital modes and remote operation.
Enjoy the digital modes such as FT8, JS8Call, SSTV and many more over VHF/UHF using an inexpensive amateur radio transceiver.
The test batch of Digirig Mobile is all sold out and enjoying high grades from early adopters. Now the new revision 1.5 is publicly available with ample inventory. Let’s look at the changes and improvements…
We’ve got a positive confirmation of Digirig Mobile making friends with Yaesu FT-857D. Other classic Yaesu HF rigs share the same connectors, specifically: FT-100, FT817, FT-857, FT-897, FT8-817ND and FT897D.
Love them or hate them, Baofeng HTs are here to stay. Digirig can easily double up as a serial interface for programming your radios with Chirp.
Now that the first shipments are arriving it’s time to look at the cables.
The early access batch of Digirig Mobile is on the schedule to become available to early adopters later this month. The first 144 boards are assembled and being tested.
The new revision of Digirig Mobile is going into production. A hundred of early access units are expected be available to testers in March.
New revision of Digirig Mobile is redesigned to fit into a standard extruded aluminum enclosure. Better idea for rig isolation.
Today I had a chance to test the Digirig Mobile prototype on the air. Several dozen FT8 QSOs concluded that it was a success. As a bonus to significantly decluttered cabling, I also had a more reliable CAT control.
