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 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.

More details later when they become available.

Personal DV MMDVM Hotspots

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

Notes

  1. Hotspot Nº2 is a portable/mobile hotspot and is used mainly at work and other location away form home. I power it either via a DC to DC converter or a battery power pack I purchased from Amazon.
  2. A Dual TS board is planned for this hotspot leaving the DMO board available for inclusion in a planned portable hotspot.
  3. I have another DMO hotspot on order and will update what it will be use as when it arrives.
