Experience the power of the SVXLink Analog Hotspot, a cutting-edge HAT designed exclusively for the Raspberry Pi Zero.

Packed with a formidable UHF 70 cm band radio module, this versatile device is accompanied by a state-of-the-art DAC/ADC, enabling it to function flawlessly as an EchoLink/SVXLink analog hotspot.

What's more, with the combination of a remote SVXLink with AnalogBridge (DVSwitch), you gain access to digital networks, including the Brandmeister and OpenDMR network, unleashing a world of limitless possibilities.
