The DVMEGA-Cast is an internet based HAM-tranceiver, providing you with D-star, DMR, and C4FM (YSF and FCS).
This rigid unit uses a 12VDC power supply, consumes less than 1 Ampere (make sure to use a proper and clean powersupply, some switched powersupplies can generate interference), and has a nice touchscreen for selecting talkgroups and modes. Inside we have placed the AMBE3000 board (included), and a high-end CPU for optimal performance.
An integrated speaker in the fornt-panel gives a loud and crisp audio on all modes. Inside of the speaker-area we added a color-LED, showing the unit-status.
Pi-star is what we use as our base, which is one of the most reliable solutions. We added the web-interface for upgrading all modules in this radio, so no difficult menus.
The DVMEGA-Cast can 'transmit' using a yeasu microphone (mh48 type), which is also available from our shop if you need one.
The internet connection used, is up to you, wired or wifi (using the supplied small USB-dongle at the rear).
