Cross-linking with BrandMeister

To create cross-link you need several things:

  • An valid EchoLink node account
  • Patched version of SVXLink software that should be deployed on the same server with BrandMeister
  • One of supported AMBE Dongles

Patch is available here - https://code.brandmeister.network/r3abm/AutoPatch.git

We strongly recommended to do start of svxlink after BrandMeister.
