USB AllStar Adapters

 Just $85 + shipping

Our USB AllStar Adapters are designed for plug and play with popular portable radios or for installation with virtually any radio or repeater.

AllStar is different from other Internet linking networks in that you can add multiple nodes, in any link or repeater configuration, to interconnect and bridge radio networks such as D-Star, IRLP, EchoLink, and MDR. 

Further, AllStar has incredible high-fidelity audio.  Once you experience the AllStar sound, you won't be satisfied with anything else!

With the Advanced Repeater Systems USB AllStar Radio Interface Adapter, it is easy to join the exciting world of AllStar by creating an AllStar Node or Link to your Repeater.

The Radio Interface Adapter utilizes the CM108 chipset, installed on a high-performance 7.1 channel soundcard.  The Adapter has been tested and is compliant with USB 2.0 Full Speed (12 Mbps) Specification, USB Audio Device Class Specification 1.0 and USB HID Class Specification 1.1. 

The Adapter is USB bus-powered (mode Type A), no external power required.

USB AllStar Radio Interface Adapters are available with speaker/microphone connectors specifically designed for most Icom, Kenwood, Yaesu, Alinco, Baofeng and Wouxun portables.

The Adapter has 3 status LEDs for indication of Power and Computer Communication, Rx Modulation and Tx Key. Potentiometers set the transmit and receive audio levels.

Adapters are preset at the factory and are ready for plug and play operation.
