Hello everyone. Looking at the products page and it looks like you guys have a pretty capable product. I’m trying to setup an all-star node connection to my radio and I came across you guys. Would you be able to point me in the right direction as to what device/cables I should get? I am using a raspberry pi 2b for the node and wish to connect my icom id880h to the node for RF. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am being overwhelmed by all the different devices that claim to do just what I need but I feel yours can do the job I seek.
Please check out this post for the cable recommendations:
I can mix-n-match the kit by replacing the unused in your case MiniDin8 cable with TRS cable for CI-V. Just leave a note with your order requesting it.
You’ll also need Digirig in CI-V configuration and USB-C cable.
I have made an order D-9085. What did you mean you can mix and match? Does the digirig come with a cable? I bought a few cables for different radios as it looks like I can configure the digirig for different use cases. I have an ID880h, a yaesu ft100 and a yaesu ftm400xdr. I think I got all the cables I need. Should this work for me?
The Yaesu FT-8xx cable kit has MiniDin6 cable you need, but also MiniDin8 cable that is not used with your radio. What I meant by mix-n-match is that I can replace unneeded MiniDin8 cable with the TRS cable which you can use for the serial CI-V CAT control of your transceiver. I’ll go ahead with that for your order unless you instruct not to.
Hello Denis. I have recieved my order but I am having an issue with the device. I plugged it into my PC and it would not come up with lsusb command. I noticed the case was getting hot and i think there may be an issue. It is the chip that is close to the usb connector. If looking straight at the usb it is the chip on the right.
