MB6NG is finally on air. Currently testing RF for a short while. See https://www.m0glj.uk/mb6ng/ for details
The TAIT TM8110 and TAIT programming cable have arrived. I already had a 10A DC power supply so will be putting that into service. Coax should go in this weekend and the antenna installed so all going well, MB6NG will be on air for RF testing soon.
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.
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.

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.
I currently have 3 hotspots in use and plan to active a 4th one in the near future.
