    This is a reorganisation of the "Hamviop.org" site. I found the navigation and some of the link descriptions confusing. The links imitate those of the Hamvoip.org site. Some links may become broken over time. They are all working as of February 2019.

    The unadulterated Hamviop site is here https://www.hamvoip.org/. It is the original source.

    The subtle obfuscation of Allstarlink is evident in the Hamvoip pages. I have attempted to make the obfuscation less evident by using direct links to AllStarlink.org

    From what I have observed the Hamvoip team has undoubtedly contributed significantly to the development of the AllStar package and do offer effective support, however, From what I have read I do have concerns as to there true commitment to open source. Unless HamViop have a "change of heart" it does not bode well for the future of AllStarLink. I would not like to countenance the commercialisation of AllStarLink in any respect.
