HP Calulator Amateur Radio Fans
I know that some of the Forum members are also Amateur Radio fans. A few years ago we discussed the possibility of us getting together for a net by radio. But with the latest propagation, it would be difficult for us to have a very productive net. Echolink might be a possibility.

For the past few years, I have been using Allstar. This is a voice over IP system that using the Asterisk phone pbx software, customized to interface to a radio transceiver. With the small computer boards (PI 3), a full size PC is no longer required. A low power system costs less than $100 including the computer, radio and interface.

Question for the Ham Radio Members: Would you be interested in a Allstar Hub where we could all connect to and then discuss HP calculators or anything else?

I would be willing to set up a Allstar Hub that everyone could connect to.

For additional information on running Allstar on small computers, please see the following site:

Asterisk Allstar

At the bottom of the web page are many how-to's on setting up a node, modifying a cheap HT for the node radio, etc.

I just finished building a portable allstar node that will run off of a self contained battery (or 12V car power) and uses my cell phone as a hot sport. Great for keeping in touch while traveling.

Please let me know if anyone would be interested in this.
