[App_rpt] what do I need to setup a node

To do duplex (implement a repeater system), you need 2 FXS ports on a TDM400 
and and a QRV ARIB board. The French board does not support full duplex 

To do simplex (such as a remote base), you need 1 FXS port on a TDM400 and 
an ARIB board.
The french board does support this mode of operation.

As far as ARIB boards go, I, personally, have no experience with the French 
one, but since you
are local, and you are interested in building one yourself, our ARIB cards 
are available as blank
boards for $10 each. Its hard to go wrong.

So, with 5 FXS ports, you have enough to run 2 repeaters and a remote, or 1 
repeater and
3 remotes or 5 remotes and no repeaters.
