The node is generaly connected to VK4TUB node wich in turn is connected to the UK Hub.

    All Star is Facility to link Radios over the Internet similar to IRLP and Echo Link. It can Have a Radio Connected to it or it can be just the computer ( Raspberry Pi / Beagle Bones Black ) running the AllStar Software with a sound fob and head set connected to it. It has the facility to tie a number of nodes together at one time unlike IRLP which needs to be connected to a reflector to do the same thing.
