How To Get On The Air Without A Local Repeater

Have you ever found yourself limited by access to a local repeater? For many hams there aren't any repeaters nearby. If you're lucky there might be a few, but many of them are inactive. So how are you supposed to get on the air without a repeater?

If you can't find any local repeaters, your options for getting on the air become limited. But, in today's day and age, you don't actually need a repeater at all. All you need is an internet connection and a digital hotspot. For that, we recommend the Skybridge Plus Dual Band Digital Hotspot.

The Skybridge Plus is a powerful digital hotspot that allows you to make QSO's on the go, wherever you are. That means you can use it at home, on the road or maybe even on vacation. This hotspot offers mobility that repeaters can't match.

Battery life is another important thing to consider, that's why the Skybridge Plus comes with a 3,000 milliamp hour external battery to help you stay connected as long as you want.

It also features a built-in OLED screen that displays a contact's name and DMR contact information. This hotspot is also dual band which means it can transmit on both UHF and VHF frequencies. Even in RF congested areas, It'll work just fine.

You might be have some questions about compatibility as well. We know it's frustrating to find new radio gear that seems like the perfect solution, but then turns out to be incompatible with your setup. The great thing about the Skybridge Plus, is that it works for any ham setup because it's compatible with not only DMR, but also DSTAR, YSF, P25 and NXDN. 

If you want to make big changes in your setup in the future, you can trust that your Skybridge will always work for you. With the Skybridge Plus Dual Band Digital Hotspot you'll never have to worry about repeaters again. Instead of being limited to transmitting in certain areas you'll have the freedom to get on the air whenever you want.
