MMDVMHost – SUPERSPOT

I’m building a SUPERSPOT. This will be MMDVMHost based and will give me a dedicated process for each MMDVM board and mode I wish to use. I already have the MMDVM Boards for this project.

If you would like to build your own SUPERSPOT or just a hotspot of your own you can follow my instruction to achieve your goal. If you only have or only want to use one MMDVM board just follow the instructions by setting up ALL the modes you want for that board.

DV Hotspots – Rethink — Again

Yet another re-think about my hotspots. First I am building a portable SuperSpot which I am also creating build details that will be available for all once the build is complete. Once the build is complete I will work on how my other hotspots fit into my experience and what role in my Amateur Radio Experience they will play.

The SuperSpot will consist of one Raspberry Pi driving 3 or 4 MMDVM boards with one of those being a Duplex MMDVM board running DMR.

Ubuntu Linux

It’s been 12 month since I installed Ubuntu on my netbook and I haven’t looked back. I still have a copy of windows 10 running as a virtual machine to program radios that I haven’t been able to find software to program then via Linux.

My netbook breathed it’s last breath a few month ago and I now have acquired 2 Dell laptop’s to replace the netbook. One is an i5 processor and the other is an i7. Both machines are very fast and I’m very happy with them.
