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 then proceed with my other hotspots and how they will play their role in my Amateur Radio Experience.
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.
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.
I have decided to re-organize my hotspots. I have 2 Duplex boards and 2 Simplex (One is on order) that will be combined to provide 2 hotspots each having a duplex and a simplex frequencies assigned to them.

Traveling to Lanzarote again staying at the same apartment block as my partner and I did in March 2018.
This will be staying on the island from 1st to 12th September 2019 in Costa Teguise.
I will have my Pi-Star Hotspot with me and a DMR, D-Star and Fusion handheld radio’s which are capable of analog too. If you see this post before I have completed my holiday and would like to make a meet up or make contact while I’m on Lanzarote, please make contact with me via my Contact Me page. I’m looking forward to meeting some of the Amateurs on the island.
My understanding is that there is a repeater on the island and will programming a radio to this before I leave the UK.
2m ED8YAA -145.600 MHz -600 kHz FM
A website I view regularly is lanzarotewebcam.com for the airport webcam. I love to watch planes.
On the 1st of march we will phase out the GPS destination 5057. If this is the destination ID you are currently using in your codeplug, please update it as soon as possible using the instructions below.
