Building Allstar Node
First you will have to apply with Allstar to get a node Number usually takes 24 hours maybe quicker.
Next you might want to see what band to put your node on and see how busy the frequency is.
Always use CTCSS both ways so no interference comes through your node.
Look at radios Yes HT's do work but they get really hot they don't work long. Mobile radios are much better and
make sure you put a nice fan on the radio so it doen't get to hot. If you are on our system sometimes we have
long QSO. On my repeater I am running couple of fans to keep the system cool. They are also on thermostats.
Lets get started there is few ways to build your new node.

Raspberry PI 3     

Case for Raspberry pi 3 with fan  

Power supply 3.0 amp 5 volt 110 volt version   

Power supply 3.0 amp 5 volt 12 volt version  

Flash card reader  

Micro SD card 32gb

(OPTION 1) You will have to micro solder with this option. You need to know how solder
before continuing on. This option does work. It's being used on my transmitter side of my repeater.

This (OPTION1) Sound card
1N914 Small Signal Rectifier Diode IN914is COS,  10k Ohm Carbon Film Resistors - 1/4 Watt - 5% - 10K for pull PTT,
BC547 Transistor NPN 45V 0.1A For PTT,
15 Watt soldering iron. You don't want to burn the board. if you have a hot iron just don't leave it in one place to
long. Solder I am using alloy Sn63, Flux 282, Dia .031, Core 66. This solder seems to work the best.
This is (OPTION 2) DMK URI CARD
Dmk URI card is used on my repeater reciever.

AutoSky Skywarn for hamvoip Allstar
AutoSky is a Skywarn program designed to work with Allstar. It receives NOAA warnings for your
county and announces them on your local node. It is easy to setup and has been adapted to work
with hamvoip V1.5 software. AutoSky voices out simple voice alerts like “Tornado Watch” or “Flood
Warning” at the drop of transmissions using the Allstar tailmessage command. It covers all the alert
messages that would normally be encountered in a Skywarn system. AutoSky is an additional
package in the hamvoip repository.
