What is a node?

It's a special type of computer that connects a radio to the Internet.

Why?

A node allows a ham to interact with other hams all over the world.

Nodes can be used at home or in your car or connected to a repeater for others to use.

Nodes can be designed to operate in a variety of modes:
IRLP, AllStar, EchoLink, D-Star, C4FM, DMR, & P25, NXDN, POCSAG
