The DHAP* Mini is the latest in a line of packaging concepts for D-STAR components. A DVAP, a Raspberry Pi Model B with microSD card, a D-STAR Raspberry Pi image of your choice and rechargeable batteries…all in one small footprint box for easy mobility. The DHAP Mini case (and some components) are sold by Hardened Power Systems. The case is manufactured using a 3D printer so everything fits perfectly.
Once assembled and wirelessly connected to a hotspot, the DHAP Mini permits use of an HT at home, work, or on the road…no need to find a D-STAR repeater as long as you have a cellular or wifi connection with your hotspot, you’re on the air! Range can be from 100 yards to up to a mile (depending on terrain and antenna). Walk around your neighborhood and be on D-STAR even if you don’t have a local D-STAR repeater!
