[VIDEO] New Getting Started Video

OpenRepeater - Getting Started with ORPIn this video I provide a quick overview of the process of setting up an OpenRepeater controller with the required hardware and software to go from nothing to basic operation. This guide is intended for users of all skill levels.
It will not cover specifics of all setups, troubleshooting, and all the features of the user interface as those are more in depth topics for other videos and knowledge base articles. Also, this only covers the generalities of the controller side of the repeater. Dealing with the radios and RF side of the repeater is up to each individual operator.

About the Project:
The OpenRepeater Project is custom software that allows you to use a single board computer, like a Raspberry Pi, as an amateur radio repeater controller with some additional interfacing hardware between the SBC and and the radios.
