Digital Repeaters

D-STAR DV/DD* and FM Mode Compatible
All-in-One Package Digital Repeater
* DD mode is available for ID-RP1200VD, 1200 MHz repeater only.

(144 MHz, DV/FM) ID-RP2010V
(430 MHz, DV/FM) ID-RP4010V
(1.2 GHz, DV/DD/FM) ID-RP1200VD

The ID-RP2010V/RP4010V/RP1200VD is a 144/430/1200 MHz Digital repeater compatible with the D-STAR as well as analogue FM for mixed mode operation. With an internal controller, the RF modules can function as a single band D-STAR/FM repeater. (ID-RP2C Controller is not required.)

For repeater owners with limited Internet resources, the optional UX-262 LTE Unit provides wireless Internet access. Combine the LTE unit and the Internet Gateway function, you can drop a repeater anywhere with LTE connectivity and be on the global network.

Integrated Controller Function

Up to 4 modules can be connected to one gateway server.
The DD mode repeater must be directly connected to the gateway server.

The D-STAR repeater, ID-RP2010V/RP4010V/RP1200VD has an integrated controller function with the RF module unit. Each repeater can work as an independent repeater to relay received signals. When connecting repeaters with a supplied Ethernet cable, cross-band operation is possible.

Compatible with Repeater Controller, ID-RP2C

These new D-STAR repeaters are also compatible with the external repeater controller, ID-RP2C. You can replace a repeater module in an existing ID-RP2 series D-STAR repeater site to use with the ID-RP2C repeater controller.

DD Mode Operation (ID-RP1200VD only)

The 1.2 GHz repeater, ID-RP1200VD works in either DV or DD mode (switchable). DD mode provides data communication and Internet access at 128 kbps. The IC-9700, which has 1.2 GHz DD mode, becomes your wireless modem through your computer’s Ethernet port.

Optional LTE Unit, UX-262 for Wireless Internet Connection

By installing the optional LTE unit, the repeater can be directly connected to an LTE network* and the Internet. When using multiple repeater modules in a site, one LTE network can be shared with the multiple repeater modules. (up to 4 modules)
* Network coverage provided by a generally available data SIM card. A static Global IP address is required for the Internet SIM.

Simple Internal Gateway Function

In combination with the optional LTE unit and simple internal Gateway function, a provisional D-STAR repeater site* can be easily deployed in the field in an emergency situation.

* Please check the legal requirements in your country before using the provisional repeater site.

D-STAR DV/Analogue FM Mix Mode Operation*

When using the Mix mode operation, the repeater receives both D-STAR DV and analogue FM mode signals and relays the received signal in the same mode. This Mix mode function is convenient for migrating an existing analogue repeater to an D-STAR repeater, while keeping analogue FM mode compatibility. Single mode operation (either DV or FM mode) is also programmable. For analogue FM mode operation, CTCSS, DTCS codes and 1750 Hz tone are programmable.

* The D-STAR gateway function cannot be used with FM mode signal.

High Duty Cycle Operation

Employing a high-performance power amplifier, the D-STAR repeater can endure up to 60 minutes of continuous transmission and provides a reliable high duty cycle operation at 25 W RF output*.

* 25 W RF output power for ID-RP2010V/ID-RP4010V. 10 W output for ID-RP1200VD

New RF Direct Sampling and FPGA Platform

The ID-RP2010V/RP4010V repeaters use the RF Direct Sampling method. For 1.2 GHz, the Down Conversion IF sampling is used in the ID-RP1200VD repeater. Signals are processed in the FPGA digital domain, that eliminated distortion and other elements seen in the legacy superheterodyne receivers. The result is receiver sensitivity that is greatly improved.
