KAMBRK / VE7TEQ

2m Repeater:

The repeater itself is comprised of two Motorola CM300 mobile radios mated to a pair of Raspberry Pi 3b’s. One Pi is dedicated to do the analog repeater operations. It runs as an AllStar Node.

The other Pi is running Pi-Star which accomplishes all the digital modes available on KAMBRK.

KAMBRK
(VE7TEQ)

KAMBRK is a tactical name given to a repeater that I run out of my home. This rack houses a 2m repeater and an APRS Digi/iGate.

Soon enugh it will be installed somewhere at altitude near its current QTH to fill the deliberate QRT in the area.

APRS:

As for the APRS functionality at KAMBRK. This is done via the Direwolf software which also runs on the Pi-Star Raspberry Pi mentioned in the leftmost column.

This APRS node is titled KAMBRK and can be found on aprsdirect.com It is a Digipeater as well as a TX’ing iGate.

KAMBRK achieves the various different modes of service based on use case. Meaning depending on which mode has been triggered – that currently active mode will be dominant for a predefined amount of silent time before reverting to scanning for the next mode to be triggered.
