Welcome to PTTLink!

PTTLink is a network of Amateur Radio repeaters, remote base stations and hot spots accessible to each other via Voice over Internet Protocol. PTTLink runs on a dedicated computer (including the Rasperry Pi) that you host at your home, radio site or computer center. It is based on the GPL Licesed and open source Asterisk PBX running our app_rpt application. App_rpt makes Asterisk a powerful system capable of controlling one or more radios. It provides linking of these radio "nodes" to other systems of similar construction anywhere in the world via VoIP.

PTTLink's primary use is as a dedicated computer node wired to your repeater or radio. Connections from Echolink, other VoIP clients and telephone calls are suported

PTTLink has 237 users and 373 nodes.

PTTLink Downloads

ASL is used on a "conventional" computer system (one with a hard drive, SSD, or Flash card) and involves a full installation of Debian GNU/Linux. The x86 version supports modern motherboards and hardware, unlike its predecessors (ACID, etc), and now there is support for the Raspberry Pi 2 & 3 (other ARM platforms coming).
