Making a MotoTRBO out of a Quantar?

Postby n2rdp » Sun Apr 23, 2017 8:02 pm

A few days ago, someone told me that by adding a circuit board to a Quantar repeater, you can make it into a MotoTRBO.

I thought this was odd and wanted to run this by the people here and see what you folks say.

It is possible with MMDVM?

YouTube video out with an MTR2000 but a quantar can do the same

Key piece is the modem is connected to a C-bridge or similar server to complete the connections

I do not have information saying this will run standalone

If the lights are out when you leave the station and then come on the second you key up, you know you have enough power.

Any half decent FM repeater can be made to pass DMR. Follow the sticky here on using back-to-back mobiles for P25 and it'll pass DMR of any flavour including Mototrbo.

The addition of the MMDVM board allows connection to the DMRplus network. A true Mototrbo repeater it is not as it doesn't speak IPSC or other 'Trbo protocols. note that 'connection' here meaning soldering wires, it's not plug and play.
