Is it possible to setup up an interface from a PC to a digital radio that is able to communicate with a Hytera PD702 handheld (450-520MHz) or like type radio? Or are there off the shelf radios that can manage this out of the box that have a USB connection and a software API?
The research I've done shows this is easily possible with non digital radios. The information for digital is vague at best. For example the West Mountain Radio/RIGblaster looked like it could be suitable but they don't support digital.
We are aiming to do 2 things:
- Send audio from the PC to the handheld
- Record transmissions from the handhelds
We could hack something together using a USB controlled relay to control the push to talk and route the mic and speaker through an audio card but I really think this has been done before and a lot more professionally.
