Hi...I have just placed on-line an Allstar Link node. Public Node # 41406 is 2 meter accessible on 146.400 Simplex with a PL of 100. Previously I had a dedicated laptop but decided to replace it with a low-cost credit-card-sized development platform called the Beaglebone Black. There many nodes on the Allstar Link Network using these development boards. Many use it with their 4G aircards for portable operation.
