I am setting this up to show OUT OF STOCK for now. I am waiting on chips from DVSI to build more. They say delievery is 4 weeks out. So I don't want to have too many people waiting on their order to ship. Please check back in about a week to 10 days, and I'll try to update this status.
This is an AMBE encoder. With this you can communicate on the DMR, D-Star, and Fusion digital networks, all strait from your computer. This can be done using free software such as BlueDV or DudeStar.
It can also be paired with a raspberry pi to work as an AMBE server. ( details to follow soon )
This uses standard FTDI drivers which are already included as a part of Windows 7 and beyond.
If you want to or need to download the drivers they can be found on the FTDI site.
For conveince, this modules interfaces using USB-C. No longer will have to worry about plugging it in upside down. If you need a standard USB to USB-C cable you can purchase one here on Amazon. ( sorry you will still have to correctly plug in the PC side )
During this initial release phase, I have only a few of these built up and ready to ship. I will take back orders on these initially. ( something I have avoided in the past ) Once the volume picks up on these I should be able to keep them in stock for imediate shipment.
So initially please allow 4 weeks for delivery.
The system will show these as "IN STOCK", because this is the only way I can take orders.
