Portable DMR Go-Box for your TYT & Anytone handheld radios

in conjunction with an iPhone 6 / 7 as the "Hotspot"

 

Now that DMR is taking it's place among the newest digital modes, why not take your handheld with you as you travel and not be reliant on your local DMR repeater. With this article, you can construct a travel Go-box that will allow you to stay in touch with your friends back home and around the world! Consisting of a few items obtained from Amazon and easily assembled, you'll be on the air when and wherever you travel.

 

After researching many interesting approaches, I settled on the design seen below. It along with my iPhone 6 or 7 as a "hotspot" provides excellent DMR communications.

 

 

Components I used in the construction are as follows:

Construction is straightforward. Place your components in the case to best serve your needs. There are a lot of different amperage levels and physical sizes for the power packs so select one that will power the router, Shark RF Openspot and even your iPhone. I chose the Rav Power model because of good reviews and I did not need 3 outlets. Once constructed, you'll need to configure the Shark Openspot, TP-Link Router and enable the "hotspot" on your phone.
