Faraday | Starter Pack


Getting started with Faraday is simple. The starter pack includes two (2) Faraday radios enabling RF operation between two units out of the box. The “Single GPS” Faraday Starter Pack includes two radios with one populated GPS module. The “Dual GPS” Faraday Starter Pack includes two radios with two populated GPS modules. This allows a remote node and base station setup using the “Single” pack with the option of upgrading the base station by populating the GPS at a later date.

The starter pack does not include antennas. Please ensure you have appropriate antennas for the 33cm ham band or purchase them with your starter pack.

NOTE: Faraday is intended for use with an FCC Part 97 amateur radio license in the United States.

Starter Pack (Single GPS) Includes:

  • One (1) Faraday radio w/ GPS
  • One (1) Faraday radio w/o GPS
  • Two (2) USB Micro cables
  • One (1) 9V Battery Power Cable

Starter Pack (Dual GPS) Includes:

Ham radio digital communications starts with the radio. The Faraday Starter Pack includes the necessary radios to get on the 33cm band at up to 400mW output power using your FCC Part 97 license. We’re opening up ham radio, it’s time to explore.
