Have ordered a TAIT TM8110 and TAIT programming cable for MB6NG and it they should arrive around Friday. Once they arrive, I need to source a power supply that will power MB6NG as the power supply I have I feel is a little too heavy with the electricity but may use it to start with. The antenna and coax I ordered at the beginning of November last year and is waiting to be installed.
Having come back from holidays and the advent of COVID-19, I haven’t done much with Amateur Radio. I intend on getting MB6NG on air soon so watch for that. More information on MB6NG can be found here.
Will be ordering another radio to do this job as I have been told that the TAIT radio’s are a little more reliable than the Motorola radio I have. I will repurpose the Motorola for another project.
I did while on holidays fire up my Pi-Star hotspots and found that I had forgotten some of the operation procedures associated wit Pi-Star. Didn’t take long to work out what I needed to do to get going again.
I have been taken a diversion from the superspot project. I have been working on a raynet site for a group that i am involved with. Phase one of that project has been completed and I am about to start on phase 2. Phase 3 will follow shortly after that.
See https://www.derbyshiredalesraynet.net/ to see what I have been creating.
Have started to learn how to program nextion screen’s. This will be the final polish on my SuperSpot when that is finished. Learning to program these screens appears to be not as easy as I first thought so I will have to put a bit of effort into learning how to program these screens.
The Nextion Screens have arrived. The build will recommence again shortly after new year.
The NEXTION screens have arrived so the build will recommence soon.
I should have the NEXTION screens within the next 30 days or so. The supplier have shipped them and they have left the country of origin.
Have applied for a NOV for a High Powered Hotspot (Gateway). For more details, see the following websites.
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.
