fantastic interface and great company  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I bought this specifically to interface a Motorola Astro Spectra with Echolink for a Digital simplex node.

First, the interface itself works flawlessly out of the box. Construction is very solid inside and out. Documentation is downloadable from the website and easy to understand. This is by far the easies interface to set up bar none, plug and play. I got the usb version and it works like a champ on Vista.

Best of all customer support is OUTSTANDING. Mark has gone out of his way to help me with my questions regarding his product and Motorola radios, and I know he has done the same for others. If your considering an interface, I recommend this one.

high quality materials and workmanship  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I purchased a W5TXR multimode EchoLink interface with USB cable for use on an EchoLink simplex node. It is interfaced to a Motorola MCS2000 900 MHz mobile and is operational on 927.500 MHz with a PL of 151.4 in Georgetown, TX as K3TD/L. Mark delivered the unit from stock, set up was quick and easy and the interface has performed flawlessly.

Excellent product at a reasonable price  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I purchased the assembled and tested version of the product which includes the Interface controller and an Alinco VHF radio ( DR-135 MK III). The price was $475. I elected to do this rather than assemble my own due to lack of time, not ability.

Received the product as promised on delivery date and in good condition. The package also contained a test report of the final unit, together with Alinco’s factory supplied manuals and data. All accessories for the radio were also supplied, although they are not used in this configuration.

The workmanship is good to excellent on the rack mounting and the wiring harness is professional grade. I did have a few questions during setup and the owner, Mark W5TXR, was readily available to answer questions. Typically you leave a message and he calls back within an hour. (he really does !)

Overall I am satisfied with the integrated product, good value for the money and excellent support.
