Mobilinkd is still open for business during the COVID-19 pandemic.
While the state of Illinois is on lockdown, we are a home-based
business. We will continue to accept orders as long as the postal
service continues to accept packages. USPS is reporting service
delays, so please expect your orders to take longer to arrive


Mobilinkd LLC makes the best portable digital communication devices for the amateur radio enthusiast.  Our devices are easy to use and highly portable.  We make inexpensive, open, and easy to use packet radio products that integrate seamlessly with modern mobile platforms.  Our hardware and software are completely open and we encourage our customers to hack on  the board and the software.

Started in June 2013 by Rob (WX9O) and Janice Riggs and based in Chicago, Illinois, it grew out of a small project that started with a few innocuous holiday gifts: a soldering iron, an Arduino and a multimeter.

Lots of long nights and a lot of encouragement from fellow Hams resulted in a workable TNC.  Many more hours were put in to make it a product that was not just usable by others, but that would be a joy to use by others.  We hope you enjoy your Mobilinkd TNC.

We stand behind our products.  If you are ever not satisfied, return the TNC for a full refund.
