D-STAR Repeaters

D-STAR Infrastructure


All-in-One Package D-STAR Repeaters

The ID-RP2010V/ID-RP4010V/ID-RP1200VD third generation D-STAR repeaters arrives with more features, power, and support to communicate the amateur world. Internet or optional LTE connection, communicate globally.

Integrated Controller

An integrated controller is built onto the repeater to function with the RF module unit. Additionally, each repeater can act independently to relay receive signals. Connect the repeaters with the supplied Ethernet cable for cross-band operation. The repeater’s RF module in the repeater can operate as a single band D-STAR/FM repeater, the ID-RP2C is not required.

DD Mode Operation*1 ID-RP1200VD Only

The ID-RP1200VD is a 1.2 GHz repeater, that is switchable between DV or DD mode. DD mode operation acts as a wireless modem through a computer’s ethernet port to provide data communication and internet access up to 128 kbps. Use the IC-9700’s 1.2 GHz DD mode to set it up as a wireless modem.

Mix Mode Operation

With mix mode operation, the repeater can receive and relay both D-STAR DV and analog FM signals. Great for migrating existing analog repeaters to D-STAR while providing analog compatibility.*2

*2 The ID-RP2010V, ID-RP4010V, and ID-RP1200VD cannot perform mix mode operation when controlled by the ID-RP2C.

LTE Capable

Connect the optional LTE unit, UX-262 to directly connect an LTE network and the internet. One LTE network can be shared with multiple repeater modules on one site. A data SIM card provides network coverage. A static Global IP address is required for the internet SIM. Combining the internal Gateway function and LTE unit, can make a deployable provisional D-STAR repeater site for emergency situations.*3

*3 Please check the legal requirements before using the provisional repeater site

RF Direct Sampling and FPGA Platform

The IDRP2010V/RP4010V repeater uses the latest RF Direct Sampling method. The ID-RP1200VD uses a 1.2GHz, Down Conversion IF sampling. This means when the signals are processed in the FPGA, it greatly improves the receiver’s sensitivity.

Other Features

  • High duty cycle operation
  • Replace a repeater module in the ID-RP2 series D-STAR repeaters, as the new modules are compatible with the ID-RP2C controller *2
  • CW ID/Voice ID transmitter
  • SD card slot for firmware updates, save setting data, FM mode, and Voice ID audio
  • Each RF module has a 10 MHz reference signal input
  • Each RF module has an internal controller providing CTCSS, DTCS codes, 1750 Hz tone and CW/Voice ID programmable for analog FM mode

Recommended System Requirements

  • CentOS 7 (64-bit)
  • CPU Clock - 2.4 GHz or faster
  • RAM memory - At least 1 GB
  • Hard Drive - 120 GB minimum
  • Ethernet ports - 2 required
